Talking Small truly is beautiful

I think that unless you are a philanthropist with bottomless resources " la Bill Gates", and dedicate a specific plan of action to eradicate a specific ailment. Development tends to be successful when it is from within, small scale, and transformative. Record shows that micro to medium scale projects spawned from harvesting local knowledge, and adapting local skills to address community needs; especially when spearheaded by small women lead organizations have demonstrated a higher, and more sustainable rate of success. Here the success is measured by the community itself, where an individual is actually able to directly reap the benefit of their own implication in the development effort.

Here is a piece I did on development communication; I guess it's ok to push you own stuff in your own thread
