Leadership and Governance is given by society. They are the ones with the vision, the aspirations. Its not about how much external resources we commit Its not about the strength of the institutions we build.
What We Believe
We believe that the state, any state, exists because of Society. It's the society that give the state the mandate to do what it does - whether that state is local or foreign, donor or government. It's the society that determines what the state should and must do. Governing is all about managing societal diversity to ensure not just cohesion but realization of full expectation of whole society with that society. This is not about democracy, its not about elections, this is about a social contract. The legitimacy of the state begins and ends with the society. Any state that ignores this fundamental fact will soon fall apart.
