The Commonwealth

BUILD has run workshops on the importance of community-based partnerships at four of the last five Commonwealth People's Forums in Brisbane, Malta, Kampala and Trinidad & Tobago and has made representation at the Commonwealth Education and Health Ministers' meetings in Cape Town, Kuala Lumpur and Geneva. These have provided opportunities to discuss with other civil society organisations and politicians the important role that partnerships between all kinds of communities across the Commonwealth can play in bringing peace and prosperity.

Since 2009 BUILD has been a Commonwealth accredited organisation which gives us access to political fora in which community-based partnerships can be discussed.
