|Abstract: ||This paper demonstrates the importance of community
mobilization and participation in project implementation.
It is based on the experience the author gained in the
management of more than 19,000 refugees who fled armed
conflict in their country, the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The success of hygiene promotion in Mwange Refugee
Camp largely hinged on convincing the refugees that
sanitation was a priority that required their critical consideration.
The lesson to be learnt is not so much the choice of
technology; rather it is its transfer that could point to the
success or failure of a project. With the ‘inside-out’ development
approach, the project team served as catalysts
thereby stirring the refugee community into action.|
