Dutabarane has perfected the processes of its Core Strategy of Church Empowerment Clusters (CEC) across all four regions and continued to build the capacity of local congregations to take ownership, mobilize local resources, strengthen partnerships within and without the clusters; in the implementation of various programs and interventions introduced by the organization.
- Church Empowerment Cluster (CEC) Core Strategy (52 Clusters)
A total of 780 churches are grouped approximately 15 in CECs to implement Dutabarane’s HIV & AIDS prevention message through VSLAs and other strategies. Each CEC has signed a covenant agreement with Dutabarane. Each cluster of congregations appoints a leader to provide oversight in coordination, advocacy, and networking; and a delegate who is in charge of implementation, supervision, strategy and management of the HIV/AIDS as well as other programs and interventions. Delegates train and work through peer educators.
