Theory Of Change

Our theory of change is built on three interrelated pillars:

  1. Empowering Communities through Education and Awareness: ZACHEDO believes that knowledge is power. By providing comprehensive health education and awareness campaigns, ZACHEDO aims to equip individuals with the necessary information and skills to prevent diseases and adopt healthy behaviors. Through community-led workshops, training programs, and outreach initiatives, ZACHEDO empowers community members to take charge of their health and well-being.
  2. Strengthening Community Capacities and Resilience: ZACHEDO recognizes that sustainable change requires building the capacities of communities to address their health challenges effectively. By collaborating with community leaders, other CBOs, governmental and non-governmental organizations, ZACHEDO fosters partnerships and collective action. Through training, mentoring, and organizational support, ZACHEDO helps local stakeholders develop the skills and knowledge needed to implement community-driven health programs, advocate for improved health services, and mobilize resources effectively.
  3. Enhancing Access to Quality Healthcare Services: ZACHEDO acknowledges that access to quality healthcare services is crucial for achieving optimal health outcomes. While focusing on preventive measures, ZACHEDO also works to improve access to essential healthcare services within the communities it serves. By collaborating with existing healthcare providers and advocating for equitable health services, ZACHEDO aims to bridge the gap between the community and formal healthcare systems, ensuring that vulnerable groups receive the care they need.
