SAMS strongly believes in a participatory approach. The targeted people of SAMS concern are also the main actors of their own development. SAMS’ role is only that of being a help to the development which must come from the people themselves. SAMS may gather resources, point them out, give awareness etc. but the actual development work must be directed and carried out by the people themselves. Only in this way development may be sustainable.
