Professional Development / Senior Advisors
Focus on Africa have a strong believe that every project must have its own “Advisory Board”. For every project there must be a team with members from all generations. To build something successful, needs knowledge, education, experience and wisdom. The last ingrediens is of most importance and wisdom can seldom be wun but through many years of experiences in real life, both failure as success. The first step to wisdom is to learn to “listen”, the next is “self-insight”. This is truly Sustainable Social Development within the philosophy of what is called “The Learning Organisation“
The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding, To receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity;
To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion—A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,…” (Proverbs 1:1f)
The organisation of Focus on Africa is a non-profit umbrella organisation today. The annual member-fee is used to pay the daily expenses. The whole organisation is people who works as volunteers to help Africa. Focus on Africa Advisory Board, is a team of Senior Advisors that works on mandate of one year. This teams have hundreds of years of experiences together and comes from different backgrounds.
Communities of Practice
Focus on Africa is building “Communities“, which means that projects that has been implemented and successful is named “Community” of that practise. Example, one Company have been developed within the area of Clean Energy and is successful. This means that this project can we learn a lot from, so we connect other projects in between each other so that we can learn together how we achieved this success. We can also call this “the Learning Organisation“, why should we do the sam misstakes twice? So, every project will have its own “Community” of success.
