STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY INITIATIVES, BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS OPP-RTI Sanitation and Housing Programme,

Abstract
By : Perween Rahman

 
The Orangi Pilot Project-Research and Training Institute's (OPP-RTI) work is based on the observation that poor people everywhere when faced by problems do not sit idle, but take initiatives, from lobbying to self help, be it for housing, infrastructure, education, security, health or employment. Some technical and organisational guidance and in some cases, credit is needed to strengthen people's work leading to confidence building and a process of partnerships in development. What began from supporting self-help sewers and housing in the informal settlement of Orangi in Karachi has now extended to many cities and sectors, influencing government policy.
