Many rural communities concerned with development have extended family through out many government and private institutions. A community seriously undertaking comprehensive development uses these extended relationships to obtain various forms of support. Most of these communities do not take advantage of these in any regular or systematic way. Voting patterns often leave a community low on political priority lists. Many communities wait for bureaucracies to initiate programmes rather than begin the dialogue themselves. Unless communities put forth a strong corporate voice to take advantage of its multitude of extended relations, they will remain dependent on sporadic development efforts from the outside.
