STRO strongly believes that people are prime actors in any development process and not targets of externally designed poverty reduction efforts (as traditional approaches in development cooperation often assume).Through the methodology "Apreciando lo nuestro" (APLN), STRO has proven that whenever conditions are created, people are able to develop a can-do attitude, while defending priorities of action to develop local communities according to their own ideas and passions.
