The Community Empowerment Collective is a not-for-profit association working exclusively on the Internet to produce, translate and distribute free training material for community mobilisers, project co-ordinators and leaders engaged in strengthening low income communities toward self-reliance and locally controlled economic and social development world-wide.  We are also building networks of users and partners to support the ongoing development of skills for applying that knowledge.

CEC has been online since 1996.  We are recently re-incorporated as Global Community Empowerment Collective Society in the Province of British Columbia, Canada.  Throughout this site and in correspondence we use the abbreviations Community Empowerment Collective and CEC

CEC has never raised money, operates on a zero budget and has always depended entirely on the generosity of volunteers for all its work.  If you are interested in supporting the maintenance and growth of this training material, your contributions would be most welcome including proposing or writing new module content, translating existing modules or sharing stories of how you have used the material on this site.  Please see our volunteer page for details.
