Conversations in Capulispungo


It's hard to wait. Especially when you have to wait for others to make a decision. But in the Quichua communities, they prefer to make decisions as a group. Therefore it takes time to discuss the issues, understand all that's involved, and come to a conclusion and commitment. They call this "socialization" of the decision. Yet, as a Foundation, we have decided that this is best way to do things: let them make the decision, and take on the project as their own. Our role is to help where we can, especially in training and education. The project needs to be theirs, not ours, if we want to see permanent results.
