Collaborate Community Projects is an non profit company with the main objective of providing meaningful social upliftment/empowerment in impoverished communities through participative, creativity based projects.

• creativity is defined as the act of bringing into existence something which did not exist before, and
• empowerment is defined as an individual's belief in his/her ability to form an integral part of their own learning
and development in attaining a new skill or competency.

The overwhelming need to provide basic necessities, such as food and shelter, often overshadows activities that allow people and communities to feel empowered. Creativity – the act of creating – can unlock empowerment by giving people a sense of ownership.
