A quick re-blog. Inspiring action on shit (getting rid of it) – guest post from Robert Chambers is really worth a read, on Duncan Grant’s blog From Poverty to Power.
It’s a truly inspiring example of how bottom-up action, working with poor people, can help them improve their own lives. It has improved sanitation and health for millions of people, cheaply and at scale. High performance in action.
In familiar style, it comes with a healthy sideswipe at standardised designs, teaching and hardware – the mainstays of many major programmes. But when Robert Chambers, the guru’s guru, says it is “as thrilling and transformative as anything I’ve been involved in” then it’s got to be worth a look.
