Participatory development: With little govt support, people can do wonders

Ismailimail

The poor have the potential to change their destiny and end poverty, if they are organised, save their resources and hone their skills. These three principles form the cornerstone of Shoaib Sultan Khan’s philosophy, one of the pioneers of social mobilisation and participatory rural development programmes in Pakistan.

The success of Khan’s philosophy is evident from the work of community organisations in Pakistan as well as India, examples of which were on display on Monday at the National Convention of Civil Society Organisations, organised by the Rural Support Programme Network (RSPN). The event marked 30 years of RSPN, a network of 12 rural support programmes  which engage around 4.8 million rural households across Pakistan for delivery of basic services through social mobilisation.
