In the North Rupununi the communities have the North Rupununi District Development Board (NRDDB), their local NGO, to help coordinate many developmental activities that stakeholder partners would like to assist with. As part of examining community best practices this relationship between the communities and the NRDDB ranked high. In French Guiana, the community of Antecume Pata was very much interested in how this group worked to help its member communities. They decided to develop a group within their community to act the role of NRDDB to garner support to conduct activities within their community that would further their development. This is their story of how they created the group and some of the activities they were able to achieve.
