This volume documents powerful lessons in empowerment drawn from the varied experiences of four Asian NGOs. Besides presenting a diverse range of approaches to people?s development, they also describe new trends among NGOs working with marginalised groups in Asia. The contributions are personal accounts written by people intimately involved in the working of the four NGOs. They describe how each organisation has evolved its own unique programme of empowerment in an effort to deal with a range of problems confronting the poor.
