Knowledge and Understanding
is the base upon which everything else rests. If you want
to make a difference, you must always strive for accurate
information. The more you know about your community, the better
you can judge what needs to be done. Not only will a high
level of community knowledge gain you the respect of other
community members, it will help you make informed decisions
throughout your entire project.
Compassion is what guides the focus of your
project. It is important that you have compassion for other
living beings around you – human and non-human alike.
Our hearts can help drive the planning process to the best,
most necessary projects.
Action is the end result of all your planning.
It is grounded in knowledge, driven by compassion, and requires
hard work. Your actions will speak loudly in the community
– use your voice well!
