As many of you know I am a strong supporter of community focus ... but broad generalizations are a recipe for failure, and a broad anti-government agenda is counter-productive.
Sometimes government investment is a catalyst for community success ... it is reasonable for government to be the primary investor in large scale infrastructure, for example or the regulator of large corporate entities.
There are two paths ... the path where everything comes together and there is progress, and the path where things fail for the community even though some may make fortunes. In the first path there are all sorts of possible initiatives ... not just one. Success happens when the initiatives are value adding ... that is there is more value coming out than costs going in AND enough of the value coming out is in cash so that the initiative can be sustainable and value adding continuous.
I would like to challenge the Mendenyo community to look hard at everything that is being done by the community and articulate the value outputs that are being achieved ... my guess is that this will prove difficult because funding supports consumption not production ... but I may be wrong. What can be done to improve production and productivity?
