Human Rights and Community-led Development

The chapter looks at what can be learnt and done using the model of development analysed in the book. It also examines the theoretical and practical implications of an approach such as Tostan’s for indirect development. Most importantly, this chapter details a theory of change that emerged from the analysis in the other chapters (motivation – deliberation – action). In addition, the chapter looks at other programmes, including Abriendo Oportunidades in Guatemala, SASA! In East Africa, and VAMP in India. Their models, field methods, and results are explored and compared with Tostan’s. This comparative analysis offers to the reader solid evidence of the results that indirect development programmes can achieve in various contexts and through various approaches. Finally, the chapter offers to the reader a look into the future, and how advocates for a rapid shift in development practices, calling for implementing genuine people-centred approaches.
