Success and Perseverance

Every success has its secrets. We better achieve our goals by learning from others. Jamaicans can sit at the feet of this teacher. The world is doing so.  They have done it for Garvey,  Marley, George Headley and others. But we have forgotten them quickly! Let it not be so.

See this article for lessons from one of Jamaica’s finest: Success depends on your hard work – Usian Bolt

Change Agents for Empowerment

These are the real people who empower others and take them out of poverty. Poverty most often  comes from a history of colonial oppression, subsequent state neglect and current global capitalist marginalization. It is essentially a state of imposed powerlessness.

Change agents  for empowerment have a vision of what can be and of the inner dignity and potential of all. They display caring, a will to use innovation and advocacy. They are team mobilizers and involve other volunteers as well as corporate partners.

What can each of us do to become a change agent. Are we prepared to develop these qualities?  Where are we?

See how one of  Jamaica’s young change agent is making a difference:
