OUR MODEL
FOR TRANSFORMATION

The core of Vollar’s approach lies in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. According to this theory, three kinds of needs drive human behaviour; physical needs, emotional needs, and fulfilment needs.

Our model recognises that to transform a community we need to ensure each person has the opportunity to fulfil these basic human needs, from the bottom to the top, and by doing we can create an enabling environment where people can go on to achieve their full potential.
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
Safety & Security
To increase the safety and secure in the communities we work with, we partner with the local approved neighbourhood watch to incentivise volunteers to participate in patrols. Neighbourhood watches are a proven way to increase the security and resilience of a community, but it's often difficult to keep volunteers active. That's why using our virtual currency to reward volunteers is a critical part of keeping this valuable asset alive.
Community & Accomplishment
To build a sense of community and accomplishment we partner with local religious organisations who work with Vollar to run regular community upliftment projects such as planting gardens, cleanups, and beautification. Because volunteers work together, they build new friendships while taking collective responsibility of their community. Looking at the result of their work, they gain confidence in their abilities and feel proud of their accomplishment.
