WaLAI follows a participatory approach in every sphere of its work. The knowledge of marginalized persons in valued and respected, and there is confidence that LGBTIQ persons are capable. On a practical level, the fundamental thrust of this approach is empowerment.
For the community to be able to work for its own development there is a need for full involvement at all stages of activities. The participation of LGBTIQ persons in identification, planning, management, implementation and evaluation of projects is a key factor in Wave of Legacy Alliance Initiative work. Internally, a participatory approach is adopted in managing affairs of Wave of Legacy Alliance Initiative.
Externally, WaLAI’s role as a “change agent” helps to develop LGBTIQ community management structures that are capable of managing their own development. This increases the ability of the LGBTIQ community to demand for accountability in all their affairs, from leaders and officials.
Human resource development has been key in our work. This means ensuring that the LGBTIQ community members are trained and skilled, as well as organized, to maximize potential of LGBTIQ community to take hold of its own development.
WaLAI strongly believes in maximizing its impact by transferring field experiences into knowledge to influence the development of policies and practices. This is important for working towards the long term goal.
