Growth of Social and Economic Development Projects

In recent years, local and national Bahá'í communities have launched an increasing number of small-scale development projects. Such projects cover a wide range of activities, from agricultural training to health care, as shown in the chart below. As of 1992, Bahá'í communities operated at least 1,344 projects of all types, up substantially from 129 in 1979, when detailed records were first kept. The number of projects dropped slightly between 1987 and 1988, in part because prototype literacy projects in India were terminated at the end of 1987.
