Capacity development, learning, change, poverty/power/progress
I always walk away from a conversation with Saeed Wame, founder and director of Namwera AIDS Coordinating Committee (NACC) of Malawi, with a new understanding. Whether he be blowing my concept of “capacity” wide open, or offering a completely new definition of volunteer, Saeed is the sort of community leader whose wisdom and humility always leaves you with much to be mulled over and much to be integrated into your work and life.
The conversation I had with Saeed earlier this month was no different. We talked about the $ value of community contributions to his organization, the challenges of the intimate factors at play when it comes to child protection, and how numbers cannot portray the true value of his organization’s work.
