Abstract

This chapter aims to discuss the details of the project entitled Communities' informal care and welfare systems (CICWS); strategies to enhance CICWS; Indigenous community members' views regarding the use of CICWS for local-level social development; and how a beginning can be made to employ CICWS for local-level social development. A combination of relevant research and data-collecting methods' such as survey, focus group, observation, reflection, secondary data analysis, nominal group, and brainstorming - were employed in the project. The analysis shows the potential use of CICWS for local-level development activities, such as building a pond, forest protection, and creating similar local-level infrastructure. They also can be creatively employed for socio-cultural events, such as marriage, birth, and funeral, and social issues, like addiction. Further, it also suggests skills and strategies needed to achieve this, particularly in partnership with formal systems. For optimistic thinkers about CICWS, this chapter gives rise to hope that CICWS are useful and can be employed for developmental purposes.
