What We Do
We believe in the power of communities—and their ability to help themselves grow stronger, healthier, more stable, more prosperous and more peaceful. We know that every community has within it the ability to find creative solutions to complex problems, and we help people realize this potential. We build capacity and infrastructure from the top-down and the bottom-up leaving a legacy of leadership as well as enduring results.
Bringing together best practices from the public and private sector, ISC uses creative, flexible training and mentoring to help communities produce breakthrough results.
We have a proven track record in helping communities move quickly toward a better future. To date, we have managed 88 projects in 24 countries, leaving a legacy of strong community leaders, organizations and networks with the capacity to keep building on our work.
ISC views the concept of sustainable communities as a framework to guide action. Read our definition of what makes a community sustainable.more
