Abstract

New 'bottom-up' approaches to development attempt to transform the condition of rural population through the mobilisation and utilisation of their resources.Anambra State in Nigeria provides a case study of rural change and the role of social organisations and institutions (especially age-grades, social clubs and town unions) in the drive for rural transformation. These organisations form the pivots of rural self-help and have executed numerous projects but the absence of clear policy guidelines has limited their effectiveness.
