Short summary:


Terry Manning is a New Zealand lawyer. He is married with Janna Moerland (born in the Wieringermeer, Netherlands) and has two adult sons.


He worked for 25 years in Italy where he was directly involved with the development of innovative pumping technologies for the world’s poor and in particular the spring rebound inertia hand pump technology and the solar submersible horizontal axis piston pump technology.


For family reasons, he has been living in the Netherlands since 1993.


His observations of the world of development (the “aid industry”) were such that he decided it had to be possible for even the poorest to self-finance their own basic development.


After many years of self-financed work, he has succeeded in moulding an original combination of social, financial, productive and services structures into a Model for self-financing integrated development suitable for general application in rural and poor urban areas.


Terry Manning has placed his life’s work in the public domain, where it is managed in the public interest through Stichting Bakens Verzet (NGO Another Way) of which he is director.


Stichting Bakens Verzet was set up to promote the continuity of Terry Manning’s work.


Internet search engines recognise the website  as a leading resource on integrated development for the world’s poor and a wide range of development related issues.
