ABCD – is Asset Based Community Development. A way of working together, recognizing everyone has assets to offer for the betterment of the community. In a culture where almost half of the people are illiterate and most never finish secondary school, people in Mizak thirst for opportunities to learn. In addition to the economic opportunities afforded by HAPI, artisans and community members look to HAPI to help with new ideas to improve their situation. This enthusiasm resulted in many great programs to reach out to more with hope.
