Abstract

You know, we probably could have managed to do this project by ourselves, but it wouldn’t have been as easy or as successful. By the time we started talking to the people from the Justice Department we already had most of the key players in our community on board to start the project. But we didn’t really have a clear plan or the resources to get the project underway. They helped us with our project planning and with some money. That meant that some of the local businesses then stepped up to give us some more help. Then the mayor spoke to our local member of parliament and the next thing we had the minister up here meeting people and talking about our project. So the local media started to pay attention and we were suddenly being taken more seriously by the rest of the community. So, yes we could have done the project without that help, but it wouldn’t have been the same at all.
