Social Development Commission

The Social Development Commission (SDC) helps Community Based Organizations (CBOs) develop the experience and structures to work effectively on behalf of the community members they represent.

The SDC identifies communities that have projects, which fall within the JSIF project criteria and works to build the capacity of CBOs. This is in an effort to ensure that there are legitimate leadership groups, which are equipped to work on the projects. SDC regional offices serve as a place where JSIF project applications can be submitted.

Due to the relating functions of the JSIF and the SDC an inter-institutional agreement was signed between the two organizations in 2006.
