Empowering the poor by creating self-sustaining people's organizations
ASSIST's core ideology was built around the approach of building self-sustaining societies and to act only as a facilitator. It is crucial to form internal support and strengthen development processes independently to ensure overall sustainability of villages without any external help eventually.
