    Lessons learnt

    • Any community intervention should always address the capacity of the provider to deliver services and the capacity of the beneficiaries to take up the services

    • Striking a point of equilibrium between the provider and beneficiary improves service uptake and sustainability of benefits


    Lessons learnt

    • Community lead interventions generate sustainable benefits which are felt at beneficiary level and can be measured using the ecological approach to M&E

      • The individual level;

      • Theinterpersonal level;

      • The organizational level and;

      • Thecommunity level


    Recommendations for future practice/replication

    • Capacity building efforts should always focus on both the service providers and beneficiaries

    • IKS is a key component in CB especially for beneficiaries which must never be under looked in Community Systems Strengthening

    • Community diagnosis and service provider capacity assessment are important in any CB interventions


    Conclusions; why it is a best practice

    • The benefits so far generated are being sustained without any external funding

    • This is a community initiative where HIPo-Africa only facilitates the process by exploring the community potentials for sustainable development using the IKS approach
