Robertsport Community Works

As Robertsport Community Works develops and grows, it becomes increasingly appropriate for the NGO to have its own space, separate from my personal posts.

We're blogging about RCW here, including all the colorful details of our start-up, progress, projects, successes and challenges. I taught myself Photoshop to design the logo, which is a silhouette of the ancient cotton tree at the campsite.

Nate and I will blog regularly, but so will the community members we're working with -- the community leaders, tourism employees, surfers, women, teachers, environmentalists and everyone else who feels like it. Expect profile photographs and their own words: we look forward to telling it like it is, in all its messiness.

Please keep tabs on us! We'll be sure to let you know how you can support us, but for now: keep reading.

  1. I like how you are going to invite community members to blog too. Hopefully they will feel open enough to share their perspectives. That will be a whole other type of participatory community development. Good idea!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and comments! They help to inform my posts and are very much appreciated.
