Date: April 7, 1965
In this document, Fathy calls for the Harraniya Village Guidance Project to serve as a resource for research and practical experimentation in order to develop the interior infrastructure of the village and to utilize manpower and local resources for construction. To accomplish this initiative, Fathy proposes a move to the development of a traditional cooperative system among villagers. He argued for the engineering and composition of resources for building and construction be manufactured using local methods.
