The Orangi Pilot project (OPP) is one of Pakistan's best-known non-governmental organisations. It has built its international reputation primarily on the basis of its low-cost sanitation programme which originated two decades ago in the lanes of Orangi, the largest informal settlement in Karachi housing more than a million people. This book provides an independent critical assessment of the impact of the OPP's sanitation programme. The book argues that the main reasons for the considerable success of the OPP and its model lie in the nature, philosophy, and methodology of the organisation. The simplicity of the OPP model ought to make it an easily replicable model. However, given the nature, values and organisational culture of the NGO sector in Pakistan, which are different from those embodied in the spirit and the working of the OPP, the replicability of the model has become difficult.
There is a great deal the NGO sector, development workers and writers, donors and even government, can learn from the way the Ornagi Pilot Project has achieved great respect and admiration all across the world.
