I had been working in the community for about two years, implementing an urban disaster risk reduction project on behalf of Habitat for Humanity and funded by USAID. The Building Resilience And Capacities against Emerging Disasters(BRACED) project focused on behaviour changes at the community and policy level. We embraced a participatory methodology of learning and teaching and involvement. 470+ of the 500 households participated in the recently concluded enumeration. Some were unable to participate because work schedule didn't allow. Few refused to participate. We collected biographic, demographic data on the household, and data on medical history, health seeking behaviours, sources of income; income brackets; sanitation etc. There was very personal information that people were prepared to give because they understood the WHY!!!!<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-a-twnfpJGfY/WgxtkjQ0tYI/AAAAAAAAQjc/sf7dLbCYnSkYm93XaI3DuV5uzh1llqorwCLcBGAs/s1600/IMG-20170822-WA0029%2B%25281%2529.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-a-twnfpJGfY/WgxtkjQ0tYI/AAAAAAAAQjc/sf7dLbCYnSkYm93XaI3DuV5uzh1llqorwCLcBGAs/s640/IMG-20170822-WA0029%2B%25281%2529.jpg" width="640" height="360" data-original-width="1280" data-original-height="720" /></a></div><blockquote><i>Two Community Enumerators Collecting Data From Respondent</i><br /></blockquote><br />What made this possible? We engaged in robust sensitisation. We had a plan. It was quite participatory: <br />1. We began with a visioning exercise, "Re-imagine Naggo Head." Members of the community shared what for them were the changes they'll like to see in the people, the place and in governance and what needs to change for those changes to take place. Those were documented. Then we did the problem tree, where citizens discussed the root causes, the problems resulting, and the solutions for those problems. <br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5OgT5izXI00/WgxvBFFrsoI/AAAAAAAAQjo/i9D1dJXIzVoV1_rrIG-14DFOpGiFuqxVQCLcBGAs/s1600/Solution%2BTree.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5OgT5izXI00/WgxvBFFrsoI/AAAAAAAAQjo/i9D1dJXIzVoV1_rrIG-14DFOpGiFuqxVQCLcBGAs/s640/Solution%2BTree.png" width="610" height="640" data-original-width="768" data-original-height="806" /></a></div><i><blockquote>Problem/Solution Tree</blockquote></i><br />2. We trained Community Advocates. These advocates were from the community and were trained to advocate for the redevelopment of the community. They would be the ambassadors of change and would communicate it in the language of their friends. They got the word out that the enumeration was coming and the implications for redevelopment.<br /><br />3. We trained the advocates to collect the data with tablets. They became the enumerators. The training helped us with being able to tweak the framing of questions and placement of questions.<br /><br />Community people work with you when they understand what you are trying to do. They are not political puppets. In fact, in my experience the political puppets are the ones in suit and tie, speaking Queen's English & turning up their noses at those who can't understand their pompous verbiage. People voicing concerns about provisions in the regulations for NIDS is not an opposition to the principle of same. Community development and any Development for that matter requires data. Data must inform policy, government spending and development priorities etc. It will be folly to oppose a data driven economy. It is disrespectful of electors to treat them as if their voice doesn't matter. You may not believe that but HOW WE DO THINGS EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATE THAT MESSAGE!!!!<br /><br />Therefore, we must have safeguards that protect people's privacy, which is a right; ensure that there is wide consultation that encourages participation and fosters democracy; engage in accessible public education (that is education that is tailored to suit the community and is equitable) and guard against criminalising people.<br />There are approaches that those pushing the implementation of NIDS to meet aggressive timelines of lender can learn to gain trust and buy in. Lenders and Donors are generally concerned about their agenda in a very neo-imperialist way. Governments must learn how to be sophisticated in approach and balance lender's agenda with the people's best interests and doing so in a way that shows respect to the voice of the people. There are benefits that the government can realise by embracing a participatory methodology for NIDS. It not only get them the data they want but it leaves communities more empowered to make decisions towards their own redevelopment.

The leader who was inducted in the IWF Hall of Fame was former US Secretary of State and the first ever woman US presidential candidate Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. Jamaica's first woman Prime Minister, Portia Simpson Miller is also an IWF Hall of Famer.</span></p><p style="font-size:13.696px"><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:18.3184px;font-family:'times new roman',serif">The other nine were honored as "women who make a difference", and Jamaicans should be proud that among them was none other than our own Minna Israel, the second Jamaican to be thus honoured.  The first was the IWF Jamaica Founding President the dynamic Pat Ramsay, who received the award five years ago at the San Francisco IWF Conference.</span></p><p style="font-size:13.696px"><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:18.3184px;font-family:'times new roman',serif">Minna was recognized as the first Caribbean woman to be the country manager of a major Bank and a leader in many other spheres of national life. In 2011 Minna Israel was conferred with an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by the University of the West Indies and the citation noted that the "fracture which Minna Israel has generated in the proverbial glass ceiling may very well have terminally compromised its structural integrity". </span></p><p style="font-size:13.696px"><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:18.3184px;font-family:'times new roman',serif">Thirty years ago, banking was a male-dominated field; it must have taken tremendous competence and professionalism for Minna Israel to have moved up the ranks to become Scotiabank's country manager for the Bahamas and later the first woman president of the Jamaica Bankers Association.</span></p><p style="font-size:13.696px"><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:18.3184px;font-family:'times new roman',serif">This was a quantum leap not only for women in banking, but also for those in other areas of Jamaica's private and public sectors. From Minna, her fellow Jamaican women learned that they could be leaders while still embracing the fine qualities of their gender – dedication, compassion, and resilience. It is no wonder then that in a recent survey, Jamaica was found to have more women managers per capita than any other country in the world.</span></p><p style="font-size:13.696px"><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:18.3184px;font-family:'times new roman',serif">The photographs out of Houston last Friday showed the tremendous support that Minna received from her Jamaican IWF sisters, led by president Camille Facey, founding president Pat Ramsay and fellow members Patsy Atterbury-Latchman, Valerie Facey, Jeanne Robinson-Foster, Anya Schnoor, Jackie Sharp, Marcia Forbes, Allison Peart, Therese Turner-Jones, Scarlette Gillings, Corinne McLarty and Peta-Rose Hall. The bonds are strong as we celebrate and support each other, checking in ego at the door and stepping into a space of positivity and affirmation.</span></p><p style="font-size:13.696px"><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:18.3184px;font-family:'times new roman',serif">Jamaica is ahead of the curve in acknowledging gender equality, though lagging in our representation in the highest offices. We in the IWF and other women's organizations such as the St Andrew Business and Professional Women's Club, the Women's Leadership Initiative, Women Business Owners and WMW Jamaica, are not seeking dominance, but rather equality. If more decision-makers were aware that organizations which strive for gender balance are more profitable and successful, we would be leaps ahead.</span></p><div data-smartmail="gmail_signature"><br></div></div></div></div></div> <div class="blogger-post-footer">Jean Lowrie-Chin</p><p>Namaste = the Divine in me greets the Divine in you</div> Sun, 12 Nov 2017 11:08:00 -0600 https://jamaican-journal.com/2017/11/10/welcome-ms-peters/ Welcome Ms. Peters! @katechappell https://jamaican-journal.com/2017/11/10/welcome-ms-peters/ Many years ago, when I was a young, green and naive reporter, I covered municipal politics in Ottawa, Canada.
