Profile of Success in Human Development: Stories Leading to ChangePublished on 06 May 2011
This publication is an attempt to present the human faces of the development processes being undertaken by UNDP in Uzbekistan. The people profiled here represent a diversity of genders, ages, professions and socio-economic statuses, but they are all united by their determination to create better lives for themselves, their families and their neighbours.
Each story is a profile of success, documenting how people have overcome obstacles, learned from their mistakes, and taken advantage of new and innovative ideas. The people featured in these stories clearly exemplify both perseverance and hope, the result of having access to the basic human services needed to help them find work, improve their knowledge of the world around them, and even become entrepreneurs.
