"Empowering Communities" is an account of the Kebkabiya project in the west of Sudan. The project began as an attempt to improve food security in the wake of a major famine, but over the years many other initiatives have been introduced. Oxfam initially managed all the project activities; but responsibility for the project has been largely handed over to a community-based organization. The account of the increasing involvement of the community, and the creation of democratic structures for managing the project, provides valuable insights into the way in which a participative approach to development can result in empowerment for communities.
