      Dear Jeff and  all,
      I'm sorry I couldn't answer  you before. I really appreciated what you wrote and I like to confront myself with people like you. I'm fully involved now in the life year. Two young people I caring for, the project of women who is not yet started and perhaps it will start later. I'm in touch with peole in Kenya through Janet and I'm  a little worry of expectations they have.  Janet is helping me so much. The matter is that what comes from Europe and west world is not always good, and people are not always skilled. I think that is not possible generalize but I think  that skilled local people can work in much more effective way that foreners.  So I'm very convinced that we must at first collaborate to develop local skills and therefore to increase the capacity of woking. 
      Bye! We keep in touch!

      Dear Maria,

      Thanks for the infomation about your experiences in Tanzania. Without
      knowing the context or details of the situation I cant consider the
      situation in terms of lessons learned. However, it is clear that a
      pattern is emerging without the grassroots with on the one hand a lack
      of due dilligence on the part of those in the grassroots seeking to help
      and on the other side a group of people who take either take advantage
      of this in Africa and other developing regions.

      The situation in Africa needs to be considered in relation to
      understanding these failures. Meaning that it is very difficult in many
      regions to operate effectively given the many logistical challenges as
      well as in many cases a culture of dispair and depression about what
      seems like solving overwhelming problems. That is I feel the best way to
      overcome those issues of prejudices - to understand the challenges of
      everyday life in Africa as well as in other developing regions of the
      world and to talk about them in a way similar to the manner you have
      initiated here.

      > I thank very much everybody, at first Andrius, for this great
      creative work in sharing ideas and collaboration together. I would like
      to share with you some basic ideas of our collaboration. I'm very
      frustrated because of failure of a project in Tanzania. I' m not very
      experienced although I'm a middle aged woman. I want to learn from
      this experience and I want to stop prejudices between local people and
      people like me coming from Europe or USA. I strongly believe that the
      only way to succeed is mutual understanding and collaboration. So I
      would like to discuss with everybody how to put it in practice.
