Online assistants for Worknet leaders
- Fred Kayiwa,
Thank you for your letter "My Future Thought for Minciu Sodas in Africa"
which I share with our groups.
I will think about how we might support our work on the ground. My wish
is that each of us have our own brands as individuals, that we have
online venues in Worknets, and that we benefit from Minciu Sodas's
support and services, both free and paid. I welcome our thoughts
(especially Franz Nahrada's!) how we might support each other's local
activity and encourage "global villages" and "schools for traveling
These next few months - April and May - I will be able to work on our
online support system while I write grant proposals and look for
clients, especially to create open source learning materials in
mathematics and other disciplines.
I would like to organize around some of our prominent leaders / thinkers
/ networkers, especially Franz Nahrada and Janet Feldman, but also
Pamela McLean and Edward Cherlin, and definitely God and also myself,
too. I would like to provide paid work for online assistants to help
them because I know they have more to do than they can, and we would all
benefit, and we have some exceptionally helpful people who have good
online networking skills.
I would like to start by providing a stipend for Fred Kayiwa so that he
might help Janet Feldman through the worknet that I'm setting up at
http://www.worknets.org/en/holistichelping/ (and we'll change the url
to a new domain soon!) I can afford that for at least a few months to
see how that works.
Likewise, I'd like to find a way for Tomas Cepaitis or Sasha Mrkailo to
assist Franz Nahrada. Franz, perhaps I could pay to start and then if
it works well you could pay for this? Or we could find grants or
another source of money for this?
I think Benoit and others might make great assistants. My thought is
that our most prominent leaders are strong as thinkers, as networkers,
as hosts and as mentors. Whereas I think Fred is strong as a networker,
and even a mentor, but not yet developed as a thinker and host. So my
expectation for our online assistants is that they grow as they work for
our leaders - help them write down and organize their thoughts, and help
them respond to people - and over time develop their own venues and
their own thinking.
It would be very good if we might develop such relationships because
then it will make for strong teams and open up a lot of business and
This is part of our developing Worknets as havens where our leaders
clarify their values and their assumptions.
I look forward to meeting with Samwel in London and also thinking
through how we can encourage our African thinkers!

where we can write our proposals and indeed people see that we have
impact on other people mostly on ground.

with our groups
Fredkayiwa: ok Andrius good that you liked it
AndriusK: yes I think that best for us if we simply support your dreams
as a leader :: and help you support other people, too :: so keep writing
about your dreams on-the-ground and online :: and let's work on it over
time :: I think it's best if all of our leaders lead their own projects
:: and Minciu Sodas just be there to support everybody :: and WorkNets, too
Fredkayiwa: exactly Andrius :: i love that culuture
AndriusK: yes and I'm excited by your participation :: and I appreciate
your support for David Ellison-Bey and others :: and I think it's great
if you can support our leaders :: and if I do well then I hope to
organize paid work for you and others to do that :: like helping Janet
Feldman, being her online assistant
Fredkayiwa: i like some work at the moment :: may thats why am showing
less here :: am out in the fied looking for casual jobs
AndriusK: sure :: and I will think of you :: Would you like to be Janet
Feldman's online assistant? :: She would give you tasks for you to do.
Fredkayiwa: exactly i can accept :: provided she can meet my internet
costs so i have my mordem on my laptop
AndriusK: is $50 a month sufficient? :: what are you paying?
Fredkayiwa: the charges are 47$ permonth as per dollar exchange :: but
some times it lowers and it is 55$ or 50
AndriusK: ok :: and how much do you need to live per month? :: and how
much do you need for your school?
Fredkayiwa: i pay 1200$ for fees :: per year :: and about 200$ to live
per month including rent for my room
AndriusK: and the $50 is part of the $200? :: for Internet? :: and how
do you earn your money?
Fredkayiwa: from casual jobs that i do, from small work i do like
bees,[which is now off] from also friends but i have dates too
AndriusK: what are dates? :: the food?
Fredkayiwa: sorry Debts
AndriusK: ok I understand
