Guide for Development Work

by

Go to the people

Live among the people

Learn from the people

Work with the people

Start with what the people know

Build on what the people have

Teach by showing; learn by doing

Not a showcase but a pattern

Not odds and ends but a system

Not piecemeal but an integrated approach

Not to conform but to transform

Not relief but release

— James Yen, 1920
