Sarah Welch took lead during the transition process and took us through the decision making with a lot of patience. It was no easy task. She will be leaving us in the next one month but has played a great role in ensuring that the organization runs smoothly and that we have the support we need to attain our vision. Sarah shared her thoughts towards this process and our vision.
Building a new vision from ground up is quite an incredible process, taking a just world and breaking it down to concrete objectives that lead us forward. The Tatua staff has done an incredible job bringing together our ideas and changes we want to see, and pushing us to the next level. Starting from just a concept around building a just society, we have created goals, a staff structure that takes us there, and even a salary structure that leads us through our values. This process has been one of debate and discussion, as well as lots of looking forward and imagining what we can create. The beautiful aspect is coming up with tangible changes that reflect our values, and give us a larger sense of ourselves. We have a Tatua team that will lead us to a just society, changing community after community and I am excited to be a part of it!
