To make a change sustainable and applicable to diverse circumstances, we need to listen and be open in order to create meaningful connections with those for whom we apply it.
We have enough structured ways of thinking; we have enough linear perspectives on society; we have enough individual motives that harm many people. In order to avoid it, we have to put efforts to build trust.
When thinking about development of excluded communities, it is not only the question of what is done; the importance lies in how it is made. It is a journey where thinking requires leadership that goes beyond what is seen and is led by the vision of the greater good, the importance of something bigger than ourselves, and the ability to challenge normative aspects to achieve that.
The critical part of it is how we, individually, approach trust and how do we integrate it into our work with diverse communities. We must open eyes to the diversity of people and build bridges between societies.
It is a way to see trust put in place by practices of sharing.
To understand initiatives, we need to explore the internal and external processes of how communities function and in order to do it, we need people to whom we serve trust us. The question is how do we
begin to trust ourselves and how to we get those for whom we are creating change to trust us?
