Summary: Faced with increasing cuts in government aid, grassroots organizations in the industrialized world are learning valuable lessons from their counterparts in developing countries. Never having had government funding, third-world assistance programs are showing them how to implement support-free community-based initiatives. This program demonstrates how "sweat equity" and other techniques are being used to help people cope with two of the downsides of globalization: the disappearance of social safety nets and the widening gap between the world's haves and have-nots.
