Change is slow…

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Need To Know -

Peo­ple are of­ten re­sis­tant to new ideas, new ways of think­ing, or new ways of do­ing things, es­pe­cially if these con­tra­dict strongly held be­liefs and long-per­sis­tent prac­tices. This is es­pe­cially true for peo­ple who have been de­nied their rights and ac­cess to op­por­tu­ni­ties such as ed­u­ca­tion and jobs.

De­spite know­ing that we did our best to help our clients, there will al­ways be that oc­ca­sional case where we’d ask our­selves where we went wrong or where we fell short. This is what makes de­vel­op­ment work par­tic­u­larly chal­leng­ing. Most of the time, the im­pact of what we do isn’t im­me­di­ately mea­sured or felt, not only by our clients, but also by our­selves. Cos­mopoli­tan july 2016
