Ahel For Community Organizing
The word Ahel in Arabic means a family that is not necessarily blood related. It is mentioned in a verse in the Quran twice, each time with a different meaning: the first time it means “most deserving” and the second time it means “most capable”. Ahel believes that the people of the cause or the constituency of a place are the most deserving and the most capable of bringing about the change sought. It believes that the people themselves have to lead their collective action and advocacy and be their own organized voice.
Ahel supports community groups and organizations that lead collective action to bring about change for freedom, justice and protection of human rights. We coach and train leaders and organisations interested in leading collective action to bring about the change they need and build their people power. Our main objective is to introduce and coach leaders in community organizing, shared distributed leadership and collective action so as to run successful community organized campaigns and grassroot action for change.
