Product Description

‘When outsiders design aid interventions, they are planning ways in which we can do good to or for ‘the poor’. Rarely do we really listen to and understand the intricacies and diversity of community life; too often we think we know what is best for others; seldom do we exhibit the necessary humility to learn from our mistakes and do better. This welcome book offers a breath of fresh air as it exposes some of the common mistakes outsiders make; provides insights which can deepen our understanding; and proposes ways by which communities can more truly participate in their own development. If you are involved in any way in designing or planning community development programmes, I urge you to read this necessary, well-written and important book.’
Richard Carter, Water sector specialist and Consultant
