Special Self-Help Program for small, community-based development projects.

Program Objectives:

S. contribution must be on a one-time basis only.· Self-Help activities should have a significant impact, benefiting the greatest number of people possible.

Projects that directly benefit a limited number of people are discouraged.· Self-Help activities must help improve basic economic or social conditions at the local community or village level;· Self-Help projects must also be viable and sustainable in terms of finance, personnel support (i.e.

teachers for schoolrooms), and necessary expertise and services.

· Self-Help projects must also respect environmental norms for small projects.

· Self-Help activities must fall within the ability of the local community to implement.

Activities that are too complex should be avoided.
