Fasten Network

Sharing Knowledge, Strengthening Connection, Improving Outcomes for Community Transformation



The Faith and Service Technical Education (FASTEN) Network is an organization dedicated to strengthening connections, sharing knowledge, and improving outcomes for community transformation

Community development works with multiple sources and forces of action to implement improvements and changes. A community that seeks to improve itself isn’t limited by what’s beyond its reach. While an average citizen can become a major participant in a community development process, the project will be hugely successful when done by a group of like-minded people with a common goal.

This group can include faith-based organizations (FBOs), public administrators, and private philanthropists. FBOs work every day to better their communities and the world by taking care of those in need. They provide health care and health information worldwide to facilitate community development.

Under community development, people join hands to mobilize resources, identify common goals and problems and develop strategies to reach their objectives.

What We offer

Programs Offered

1.   Transformational Leadership

Under this program, you’ll learn how to become a leader that transforms the community. Transformational leaders have unwavering faith in their work, the organizational goals and objectives, and the means to achieve them. They’re trained to be passionate about the community while believing in the community development cause and working consistently towards its achievements.

2.   Effective Communications Strategy

We train people to become effective communicators. Individuals who undertake this course know they have to deal with diverse audiences like FBOs, private philanthropists, public administrators, and even NGOs, so they’ll need to adjust their communication style to suit each audience. They’ll often need to get social and meet many stakeholders in community development, network and engage people to work towards achieving their aim.


3.  Critical Thinking

Every leader has to be a critical thinker. Leaders must be able to think up solutions at the spot. We teach people who undertake this course how to think up solutions that will improve living standards in their communities while fostering proper growth and development.

4.  Capacity Building for Development

Every community that seeks to grow needs capacity builders; as such, we teach capacity building, which entails cultivating and strengthening the ability, skills, resources, and processes communities need to adapt, survive, and thrive in a steadily changing world.

As a capacity builder, you develop and strengthen your ability to impact communities and lives positively.

The greatness of the community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members
