Task 4

Now is your chance to make a difference and do it! Decide who can help you and by what means. Tell us how you managed to gather people and who they are. List the skills and resources you can count on. Show your planning.

The PLAN: My first choice of people to work with is young people. The challenge is to gather young people who also attend the church to clean the church collectively. If young people are organised and convinced, they will be able to clean at no cost.

The Dream: for this activity to be made a weekly activity for the DC Citizens. I believe that most people have a sincere desire to cause positive change and will take action if they realise how simple it can be to make an impact.

The Approach: To meet with the team leaders of DC Citizens. I am a member of the group and volunteer my skills, and time for its activities. I will share my idea with the group leaders and find a way getting many of the group members to participate in the exercise.

Action + Progress: After meeting with the group leaders, they liked the idea. They also like the idea of it becoming a group activity.  However there has to be a majority agreement of group members for it to become a regular exercise of the whole group. We have not finanlised on the date to carry out the activity…..hopefully it will continue.

Within the group the following resources can be found:

  • leadership
  • facilitation
  • networking
  • co-ordination
  • administration
  • creative direction
  • project management
  • good will
  • desire to cause change
