The Backswing Community Project
Community Engagement Project

Backswing projects have three parallel goals. First, to deliver a great outcome of lasting benefit to local communities. Second, to develop the employability skills of each of the participants in the project group. And third, to establish self-functioning networks of people who help each other to do great work long after the Backswing project has been completed.  


Backswing projects are about people working together to face challenges, identify their strengths, aim at a sweet spot and follow through with impact.
