Our vision is of communities everywhere that have the means, ability, and freedom to determine their own development. To live and prosper with dignity.
Our mission is to enable self-sustaining, positive and community-led change that improves the lives and livelihoods of the marginalised people, resulting in restored identity and dignity.
Koinonia Resources Bhd was incorporated in 2001. Until 2018, we were known as Koynonia Resource Centre Bhd. We are a not for profit organization.
Koinonia Resources Bhd (KRB) is a community development and training organization committed to working in partnership with communities to bring about sustainable, impactful changes that improve the lives and livelihoods of the marginalised. Community driven development is not something we do for people; it is something we do with them. We believe that the people who understand their needs best are the people of the community itself.
We leverage for greatest impact by engaging with communities, governments, the private sector and NGOs/CSOs as partners for positive change—bringing together complementary strengths shared resources and expertise to work toward common goals.
The initial phases of training we provide to the community will enable them to map out their assets and strengths, identify and prioritise needs, mobilize resources to complete community projects. We provide support and further training based on their decisions.
What are the distinguishing features of our work?
Our approach is wholistic, integrated, inclusive and participatory. There is no separation between the spiritual and physical.
The power of what we do lies in our commitment to develop relationships and through equipping and empowerment training that put the people of the community at the forefront of their own development. Our approach enhances our ability to build trust and understanding, it is our primary focus on community and partnership that distinguishes our work.
