Community motivation training for local youth
June 23, 2008: Community motivation and participation is the key to the success of any development program. Orangi Pilot Project has pioneered projects in sanitation, health and education across Pakistan. Ali Hasan Mangi Memorial Trust selected four young college graduates from the village of Khairo Dero and brought them to Karachi where they will stay for two weeks and undergo training at the Orangi Pilot Project’s Research & Training Institute. During this fortnight, these young men will learn about how to develop maps, how to motivate communities and how to conduct field research. They will work with OPP’s experienced team of trainers, visit projects in the field and spend time with communities where development has taken place. Training will end on July 6.
