“The human mind is our fundamental resource.” John Fitzgerald Kennedy. One’s thoughts and ideas are of so much value despite how often we disregard them. David shares with us his thoughts on community and resource.
I think of community as a sort of family group at higher level where every person is accepted regardless of their social status. With this in mind, each and every member in a family has a role to play as well as a resource to donate.
Most developmental organizations have breached and violated the value of resourcefulness and the human capacity. These values are threatened to the extent where people can barely see the resources communities have. We often choose to turn a blind eye to what people have to offer and impose our solutions in form of a “helping hand”. The illiterate in the society deemed to be unable to speak for themselves and their input not considered as valid data.
