Stabroek News – January 1, 2006

We asked a few prominent citizens if they were given the power to go back and change something that happened in 2005, what would it be?
They had the following to say:

-Karen De Souza, Red Thread
“The national failure to build upon women-led community organisations during and after the January floods, which in effect de-centralised power and leadership of women in the affected areas. Such organisations played a vital role in ensuring the survival of women and their families during that disastrous period. I believe that the high level of violence is in some way related to that failure.”
