Shan Ali

Shan Ali, the director of the Grameen Bank Foundation Australia attended two ICDP workshops and during that time he became convinced of the importance of ICDP as a service to the poor. Talks with Shan revealed mutual interest in developing close cooperation between ICDP and the Grameen Bank, and the decision was made to start with a pilot project in the Philippines. The pilot would test out a new integrated approach including health, micro-credit and ICDP as a package to be delivered to communities in several areas of the country. An action plan was put in place, whose first step is the production of a didactic video for use in the Philippines. The challenge for ICDP is to create audio visual aids that would allow efficient delivery of ICDP inside the Grameen frame of working. [+]
