Yesterday while I was out, I had a conversation with a woman working for an NGO , which provides specialist services in the community welfare field. She informed me that the services here , pale in comparison to those available in N.Z. (where she is originally from). She spoke of several innovative and successful programs there and the inclusive attitude if their Government. She was at a loss to understand why those programs and interventions have not been implemented here.I explained to her that was also my frustration with the system;lack of vision and commitment to long term solutions. The Government here prefers to look at quick fixes, that inevitably break down(at enormous cost to the tax payer). I could go on and on but I won’t!
Today I have replied to all the emails that were outstanding. Thanks for your on-going comments and interest. 🙂
