Here's the link to that which will occupy my glorious weekend!! I leave on the ferry tomorrow, and will return on sunday (by airplane, this time around). I think this will be my last venture to Zanzibar, so I hope to pack in as much as possible!
Today has been a fairly long day…I wrote my first “activity memo” to officially initiate the long process for publishing an information sheet. Honestly, Haki is more than a little hung up on the paperwork and bureaucracy, and definitely not as efficient as my initial impression. Most of my time here is spent working on “outputs” like copy for the info sheet drafts, and then waiting on feedback from my “linkages”- managers, other departments, and anyone who will read my work… haha. I don’t think I’ll be around to see the final product, but luckily I’ve done enough project “strategy/description/justification” that someone can pick up where I leave off. It’s kind of exciting to know that an everyday Tanzanian may learn something about the national budget from a HakiElimu Information Sheet I wrote!
I’m sorry for the short entry, but I am about to enter a unit planning meeting with the Executive Director- last quarter, this same meeting took 6 ½ hours…wish me luck!
Have a great weekend, we shall meet again on Monday!
