Quote from E.F. Schumacher

About the author

Three self-help support models can be identified:

GATE support to self-help organizations

Summary: the experience of GATE

"Small-scale operations, no matter how numerous, are always less likely to be harmful to the natural environment than large-scale ones, simply because their individual force is small in relation to the recuperative forces of nature. There is wisdom in smallness if only on account of the smallness and patchiness of human knowledge, which relies on experiment far more than on understanding."

(E.F. Schumacher)

Eschborn, October 1992
