Quote of the week and working from within


“We have to be part of the society which we are changing; we have to work from within it, and not try to descend like ancient gods, do something, and disappear again.”

Julius Nyerere, Mwalimu (Teacher), Baba wa Taifa (Father of the Nation), first President of Tanzania and previously Tanganyika

A call for grassroots intiatives; bottom-up rather than top-down approaches and generally; empathising with what exists, coming up with appropriate interventions that are context-specific and driven by the very people who will live them. 

The way forward or unrealistic? What say you?
