  14. 14. FINAL MESSAGES Betterment gives a man a fish. Development teaches him to fish. 1. I will never do for others what they have (or could have) the capacity to do for themselves. 2. I will limit my one-way giving to emergency situations and seek always to find ways and means for legitimate exchange. 3. I will seek ways to empower the poor through hiring, lending, and investing and use grants sparingly as incentives that reinforce achievements. 4. I will put the interests of the poor above my own (or organizational) self-interest even when it may be costly. 5. I will take time to listen and carefully assess both expressed and unspoken needs so that my actions will ultimately strengthen rather than weaken the hand of those I would serve. 6. Above all, to the best of my ability, I will do no harm..
