On 16 June 2023, Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) launched its published book, “Development as People drawing insights from our experiences in the last two decades in the civil society sector in Tanzania. The book explores our experiences implementing people-centered development in Tanzania. FCS embodies the philosophy of people-centered development. We believe that people are the core of development. Our journey is a testament to the transformative power of civil society when people are empowered to identify their needs, formulate plans, and collectively take action to bring about development.
The publication is a celebration of people and is a collection of articles documenting the experiences and reflections of some of those who have been part of the FCS journey.
We hope this book will serve as a practical guide to those looking to implement people-centered development and that it will inspire more partners to make meaningful contributions to their communities and our nation as a whole.
