 “The Seed You Sow” – Into what will it grow?

Sow a good measure and you will reap a double portion back to you. At LADA Groups Project 1024 ,  your labor of love will allow the harvest of blessings promised to come.

Planting: Sowing a seed on its own is just the process of giving to someone else, whether it be a person or an organization as an act of charity.

So, when sowing a seed, the incentive is to “Give” NOT receive. Think of times when you receive or give gifts…

Cultivation: Think of this part as the “Law of Attraction”: a few words, thoughts, and actions have the potential to affect your future enormously. So, it’s time to start controlling your seed of thoughts.

Sowing seeds requires a measure of faith, insight, and patience.

Watering: We have been promised that “If you shall decree a thing, it shall be established! Let us be generous in sowing good seeds and watering them by inviting other sowers to the table.

Reaping: Sow a good measure and you will reap a double portion back to you. At LADA Groups Project 1024, you can produce an unimaginable harvest of good seeds. This small labor of love will allow the harvest of blessings promised to come.

Black Empowerment through Practicing Vertical Group Economics with The LADA Group

What does it mean to be “empowered”?

Learning to live in the power we each hold is the difference between “coping” & “managing” and “creating” & “living” the life we want for ourselves; the life we deserve.

vertical group economicsEmpowerment is about having or taking more control over all aspects of your life.

Much of our work is concerned with empowerment. Here, three women emerge from one of our learning circles in Sierra Leone.

Individuals: On an individual level we see empowerment as building confidence, insight and understanding, and developing personal skills, for example, being able to analyze situations and communicate more effectively with others. Being empowered presupposes some level of common sense and emotional maturity and access to appropriate information and know how; it also implies someone who cares about others and is tolerant of other’s views and behaviour (within limits!)

Unity is being together or at one with someone or something. It’s the opposite of being divided. Is your community connected like this ?
COMMUNITY broken down really means:

C = Colaboration
O = Of
M = Members
M = Money
U = Uniting
N = Neighbors (Family, Friends, Associates)
I = Investing
T = Together
Y = Yield

Yield is ROI return on Investment.

Groups: Within a group or community, empowerment can be taken to involve building trust, co-operation and communication between members, and a prerequisite for this is that there are appropriate structures, protocols and procedures in place, with effective sanctions against those who default or abuse the system. There must be opportunities for people to meet and exchange views and opinions, and ways of recording what is agreed and done; and there must be scope for having fun and celebrating achievement.

Indicators of Empowerment

The evidence for empowerment is often anecdotal in nature, but this is still valid, especially when set alongside quantitative data. We have listed below some possible indicators that we consider useful:

  • Confidence & Understanding: examples of people taking on new responsibilities e.g. chairing meetings, organising events and initiating new activities; or keeping clear records and good accounts, or the level of contact with local officials concerning issues that are of concern/interest to the local community;
  • Skills in Analysis & Communication: development and refinement of group aims and objectives; meeting with officials and talks to local schools; letter writing, and contributions to local group newsletters; preparation of group strategies and action plans;
  • Trust, Caring & Tolerance: evidence of the delegation of responsibility within the group; initiatives by groups to involve/contact disadvantaged or vulnerable people in the community; initiatives that encourage open debate and represent minority interests; providing additional facilities for members of the community e.g. organising regular breast cancer screening or visits by specialists in healthcare, youth work, planning, law or community development;
  • Communication & Co-operation: attendance at meetings; local group newsletters; telephone trees established for alerting members to important events/developments; evidence of links developing between villages/communities; new joint ventures; and
  • Access to Information: acquisition of material on group development, running small businesses, legislation etc., perhaps held in the local library or resource centre; development of a database of contacts; and use made of the Internet.

Network economics refers to business economics that benefit from the network effect. It is also known as Netromix. This is when the value of a good or service increases when others buy the same good or service.
