BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION

Posted by on May 21, 2008 in Mama Lucy & Shepherds Schools, The Latest Love | 6 comments

BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION, I've had the incredible opportunity to have many conversations with Mama Lucy, and some of the parents at the school, about the many various ways that "aid" has been provided in their country. I've sat over chai at Lucy's table and discussed our mutual frustrations with many failed, Japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, and some quite arrogant, approaches. I thought you might be interested to hear some of her thoughts, fast shipping CIALIS, too. Is CIALIS addictive, I realize, of course, that whatever she shares is now cast through the lens that she is our partner, CIALIS overnight, but nonetheless I think she expresses a frank, Buy CIALIS no prescription, thoughtful position that you'll likely find interesting and thought-provoking. If you have questions, I'd encourage you to ask them directly to her, where can i cheapest CIALIS online. Though her internet access is somewhat limited, I'm sure she'll be excited to respond as soon as she's able, BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION.

Mama Lucy's first language is Swahili, Buy CIALIS from canada, but she speaks remarkable English. I've no doubt that you'll be able to understand the meaning of her note. Additionally, CIALIS alternatives, since we hope to build an online community where people from both of our cultures can meaningfully connect, CIALIS steet value, I believe it's imperative for us to begin to share these communications without mediation.

When I asked her to share with you her perspectives on aid, and our approach in particular, real brand CIALIS online, Mama Lucy wrote:

Dear Epic Changers, Herbal CIALIS, What is aid. BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION, According to Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, it has the following meaning:

  • Money, food, etc. that is sent to help in difficult situations.

  • Help that you need to perform a particular task.

  • Help that is given to a person.


Now let's come to the point.

Those definitions give us a picture of how beautiful it is, buy cheap CIALIS no rx. For me, Doses CIALIS work, an aid seems to be a very good thing too, but it has two sides. One, CIALIS dangers, it depends on how an aid giver decides to give (the approach). To the right people/community/country at the right time through those who have direct connection to the targeted group, BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION. CIALIS forum, The other side, it depends on how an aid receiver is prepared to use/utilize such aid. Positively or otherwise, CIALIS canada, mexico, india. Someone can decide to send an aid with very good intention to help a community to cater a certain need, About CIALIS, but can end up with no good impact. The receiver must be related to that need. BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION, There must be connection between the two.

Giving aid through "participatory approach" can bring great change to a community, CIALIS dosage. Such community can value what they have participated in, CIALIS over the counter, rather than what they've just received ready made.

Epic Change has this unique approach of giving aid to our community. (participatory approach), CIALIS maximum dosage. They support us by giving us loans and strengthening our muscles by giving us chances to do planning and decision making, BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION. We do these practically. What is CIALIS, Epic Change does not leave us to be passive recipients but active participants. It helps and encourages entrepreneurship and initiative in our community; which brings economic empowerment.

This is the only way a community can be taught how to fish, online buying CIALIS hcl, and not only be given a fish. BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION, I wish other organizations could come up with this approach, there would be great change in our community. Buying CIALIS online over the counter, Lucy


When we originally conceptualized Epic Change, we knew two things:

  • We knew nothing about building a school in Africa.

  • Mama Lucy did.


Therefore, you'll see from the earliest documentation of our organization that our first, CIALIS photos, and most important, Buy generic CIALIS, core value is local leadership. Epic Change does not design, develop or implement community improvements, CIALIS without prescription. We do not build schools. CIALIS reviews, We've simply created an experimental business model that we hope will enable us to create a renewable source of capital to invest in the crucial efforts of grassroots change agents across the globe like Mama Lucy. While she calls our approach "participatory," Mama Lucy does far more than participate, BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION. She independently founded and is leading this effort. As she mentions, where can i find CIALIS online, she does the "planning and decision making." After all, CIALIS schedule, she created the school, and made it successful, long before we ever arrived, CIALIS samples. The vision is hers to realize, Buy CIALIS without prescription, along with the parents' committee, the amazing staff of teachers she's hired and, of course, CIALIS class, her students. CIALIS interactions, they-come-in-the-name.gifI recently ran across a link to the film They Come in the Name of Helping by Peter Brock on Peter Dietz's Social Actions blog. BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION, The film takes a critical look at the effectiveness of foreign development programs through the eyes of young adults living in Sierra Leone. They offer thought-provoking perspectives on the value of local involvement in identifying the needs of a particular community and the solutions that are most appropriate in a given cultural context. It's definitely worth spending some time to take a look, order CIALIS online c.o.d, and provides some compelling reasons why locally-led initiatives likely have the greatest potential for success. CIALIS blogs, In it, 24-year-old journalist Zainab Kamara says:
"They [i.e., foreign aid workers] come in the name of...solving the problem, in which they don't even have an iota of an idea...When they come, they just say, 'we have the solution to your problem; don't worry, we're here.' So their assurance is there; we're just waiting on them to solve the problem. Instead of telling us that you [i.e., local people] have the solution to your problems, all they'll do is say, 'we have the solutions to your problem, so just wait on us and we'll solve the problem.'"

Mama Lucy knows the problem, has the solution and waits for no one. As it should be, BUY CIALIS NO PRESCRIPTION.

How do you feel about our approach as Mama Lucy has shared it. Given what you know about our partnership with her, do you have suggestions for how we could improve our approach. Do you have any questions for Mama Lucy - or for us. Any other insights from watching Brock's film?

    I think one of the problems is our cultural addiction to prediction. Everyone wants a plan and wants to stick to it even when it is obviously no longer valid. Think of your plan before you met Mama Lucy. If you hadn’t been willing to instantly adapt your plan, you and Mama Lucy would be in different places.
    My co-founder and I are very comfortable with uncertainty. We make a plan, but are willing to change that plan with every tidbit of new information. As a result, we’ve been able to ‘morph’ our organization almost daily to fit reality. This drives many people nuts. For instance, our summer program still isn’t set in stone because we are daily meeting people who are desperate to get music lessons for the children they serve. So we lost those better-off children whose parents were filling out their summer day-planner in March.
    We have been sharing information with El Sistema-NYC. We were shocked to discover that there are many people interested in starting programs modeled on Venezuela’s, but we are apparently the only ones who have actually started teaching. Some have spent 18 months or more and more money than we’ve ever seen just planning their implementation. We had a plan, too, but knew that there were too many unknowns. And we were right. Our plan didn’t fit each of the locations we’ve been offered to teach. And 30 minutes into our first class at Hill Elementary, we threw the plan out the window.
    We feel at times we’re surfing a tidal wave of chaos. The footing is iffy, the view is amazing, and the ride is terrifying and exhilarating. To us, it’s the only logical way to get where we want to go. Stacey, I think Epic Change is on the neighboring wave!

    Thanks for sharing your story Jeane! I agree that sometimes the best way to get started with something is to jump in knowing you’ll have to adjust things as you go. In many organizations though, that ability rests on your ability to find people who are motivated within a community to dedicate themselves to change and the trust that donors have to have that you or the people you work with will be able to make the right decision on the fly.

    Have people found donors reluctant to offer that trust? Stacey and Jeane have you run into those kinds of fears at your own organizations and if so how do you best allay them?

    Certainly, Avi, startup nonprofits and, as we call Epic Change, “experiments” in social innovation may not be attractive to risk-averse donors, and require an implicit trust. To earn credibility, we’ve focused on demonstrating incremental, small successes early and often. More importantly, we’re trying to be a responsive, collaborative, participative organization; when you donate, you become part of a community that we hope will actively participate in creating Epic Change. I believe donors are far more likely to “trust” an organization that they’re helping to create, and to which they feel they have a direct ability to provide input and feedback. I believe trust is also earned when you’ve got some “skin in the game.” For both my co-founder Sanjay and I that means leaving our successful careers in the private sector and making significant personal financial contributions to establish our organization. I hope people see this as an indication that we’re playing to win ;)

    Finally, while, as Jeane rightly suggests, our plans are in constant flux to account for new learning throughout this fantastic journey, we are extremely focused on a clear set of objectives. Regardless of how our plans may evolve over time, if we show measurable progress toward these outcomes, I believe we demonstrate good stewardship & earn credibility.

    I believe too that there are many potential donors who are weary of traditional approaches and are willing to take calculated risks with their charitable donations. If a young organization with a thoughtful, novel approach, demonstrates early incremental successes, an openness to feedback and continuous improvement, significant personal investment and a keen focus on clear objectives, I believe there’s a vast community of donors and forward-thinking funding organizations that may be engaged. That said, marketing is key, and there needs to be a conscious effort to find such donors and supporters – which is no small task; we’re working on that right now.

    What do you think? Do you believe these steps are sufficient? What other ideas do you have for startup nonprofits and new programs to earn respect, trust and credibility from potential donors, supporters and funders?

    There is is a common Swahili sayings – “Uchungu wa mwana aujuaye mzazi” which means the pain of the child is known by the parent. Mama Lucy is the one who bears this “pregnant” for a more than 9 month. She knows the pain that is why she is so careful to care of this little child who has only 4yrs old! If the vision comes from the owner the result will be 9 times than it could come from the donnor/supporter. Many oversees have been providing fish but not teaching how to fish. Do you think there is a way for the project to be sustainable in a long run? It is good for the project owners to feel the the pain of bearing children and they would have the desire to see their children growing and bear fruits. That is what Mama Lucy is doing! Keep it up mama Lucy!

    Peter,

    Thanks so much for your comment on the Epic Change blog. I’ve been meaning to reach out to you ever since I first saw your film on Social Actions.

    I think what you’ve created is truly incredible. It shows a profound respect for those targeted by traditional aid programs. I believe if we all listened as well as your film does to the voices of those whom we’re trying to “help,” and invested in their ideas instead of holding tightly to what we, with our limited cultural context, perceive to be the “right” solutions, aid programs could be vastly more effective.

    At Epic Change, we hold local leadership to be a fundamental core value. I must admit, it’s also the value that over which we’ve experienced the most controversy. A friend and former colleague even abandoned our efforts after many passionate discussions and debates over her belief that our organization should decide, for instance, the location of the school and select the property; my co-founder and I firmly disagreed. We are deeply committed to ensuring Mama Lucy remains the decision-maker on our project in Tanzania. While we exchange ideas and share input, we believe that Lucy is in the best position to lead this effort, and make the key decisions that will guide its success. We are simply investors in her vision for improving her own community through education.

    I wish you much success with your film, and look forward to the opportunity to share evolving ideas.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog!

    Stacey Monk
    Founder, Epic Change

    PS: I’d love a copy of your DVD to bring along on our next trip to Africa this July. I think it might spark interesting conversation among the parents and teachers at the school. If possible, mail it to 315 Jackson Avenue, Satellite Beach, FL 32937.
