Staff members participate in Circles of Interest in which equality, transparency, consent, elected role-holders, and frequent feedback and evaluation make for an efficient and well-informed organization. Circles each have areas of responsibility and decision-making within their own spheres. Communication with the whole project is orchestrated through the General Circle.
We are training our people in leadership, financial management, and teaching. We were able to bring to Canada two Malagasy people from our villages who learned all about Asset-Based Community-Led Development at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. These Malagasy people learned much about how to develop businesses that would be owned and operated by the villagers, thus helping move the school closer to financial self-sufficiency. Now, community gardens, and a tree nursery have emerged!
