For organizations to provide relief and development services, a proper and accurate realization of needs is mandatory. This can only be achieved through systematic and participatory assessments of the target community.

Rural communities will need to get proper support from development programs. While, education, health, infrastructure and other programs are important, rural enterprise development is a key development intervention. The biggest help you can do to somebody is to help him sell his/her service/product. Help him/her reach markets.

For organizations to provide relief and development services, a proper and accurate fundraising strategy is the key for sustainable survival. The key for success of such a strategy is the communication and resource mobilization.
In relief and development work majority of communication is in writing. There are stakeholders, donors, employees and partners to whom you need to select the write tone in writing and the right approach. A manager is required to be a professional communicator when it comes to relief and development.
