We offer to this Commission a snapshot of our experience, from which we have learned that greater participation leads to success at elimination of poverty and to empowerment of communities. The “neighborhood parliaments” of southern India is one creative, inclusive approach that can be widely applicable and is already echoed in practices such as the Basic Communities of Latin America, community-based monitoring and “neighborhood clustering approach” in the Philippines, and the "ayalkkoottams" or neighborhood assemblies organized in regions of India. (...) In the neighborhood parliaments promoted by NGOs, children became the agents of social change. (...) The poor women of the neighborhood parliaments had a small savings scheme and were able to function as a bank for themselves.
