In the countries in which IRHA operates, we work alongside those who are who are committed to changing their daily live. With or without outside NGOs, they get involved, implement on a small scale, test and learn from their mistakes.
Too often our external NGOs, in a frantic race to attract beneficiaries and be able to deploy activities, fail to listen to the weak signals from those who, day after day day after day, implement change in their fields, as a cooperatives and at household level.
Those one may not may not take part in the village awareness-raising meeting, neither in the selection process not visits (too busy working in their fields), but these people are the real agents of change.
IRHA will learn from previous experiences and will put en emphasis on listening the weak signals. Demonstrating change is the way forward.
