This appears to resonate with the assertions by Nettles (2010:18) that social and grassroots movements can address the involved in the day to day struggles to bring about positive changes in people’s lives; that is to bring about develop. The grassroots and social movements can indeed bring about development through both practical or material as well as strategic or nonmaterial means to the people involved, and to their communities at large.
3.1 Practical role of social and grassroots movements in development
As noted by Nettles (2010:1-22), the roles of the social and grassroots movements in development can be illustrated in the case study on the Red Thread Women’s Development Organisation ( or Red Thread for short). This organisation was formed by women as a women’s initiative to empower the otherwise disempowered women in a male dominated and racially separated political culture, and sought to do that by encouraging and facilitating women’s economic, social and political empowerment (Nettles 2010L5). This was through enabling the ordinary women to learn a skill or utilised the skills they have t make and market a product, from which they could generate income (Nettles 2010:2), and thus address their practical needs (Nettles 201:18)
