Let's build 

more community spirit and participation 

across Guyana

The MISSION of Communities-GUYANA is to foster community spirit and participation in the over 585 communities across the country. To achieve this, Communities-GUYANA has created

this online platform to publicize community activities and to promote the work of community groups. Such publicity may inspire others to engage in similar actions and could also attract the attention of those who may wish to support your efforts, group, or community.

With time, Communities-GUYANA hopes to spur a national movement in civic participation, where Guyanese from all walks of life take pride in, and work to better, their communities. This aspiration includes building both nicer physical spaces as well as stronger cohesion and cooperation among residents.

WRITE US...

I am a writer, researcher, and publisher on diverse topics such as constitutional reform, political science, higher education, mining policy, and earth sciences. I am an advocate for the full activation of the constitution, especially where it speaks to national unity and inclusionary democracy, and to social, economic, and human rights.

I believe that without stronger communities, Guyana cannot deliver a better quality of life for its citizens.
