I'm a third year graduate student taking "Leveraging Organizational, Community and Political Systems" class this semester. The Community Toolbox is part of the course curriculum, so I expect to use it throughout reading assignments. In addition, a quick pass at the various resources indicates the site as an excellent resource for research projects and for practical use after graduation.

Who I am Use of CTB
I'm a teacher and researcher in local (community) development. I'm asked by local authorities to manage a community development project in a 100 000 inhabitants mountainous area.
I'm discovering Ctb, and I'm very surprised to note its adequacy in a country, an area so different of the USA.
I wish to try the model in Kabylie, a mountainous area not far from Algiers.
Ctb is very rich, and, perhaps, difficult to manage. For the moment I'm just learning it and need time and work for a project which begins in january 2015;
what kind of help may I expect? Are you interested by the project?
Kind regards . Ahmed
