Development is revolutionary…

…not evolutionary.

It should be about “sea-changes”, change, excitement, innovation, moving forward, improving, and transforming.

Community Development does start where people are already, and goes with where they want to go, but Community Development is NOT “going with the flow”: it is new and has new energy, and revolutionises people’s lives.

So, it’s likely to involve turmoil, upset, difficulty, pain, struggle, battle, and some disappointment when risks don’t pay off or when expectations are dashed.
