The main purpose of the training is to help change that sad fact.

I’m not convinced that the core infrastructure problems are the result of money
not being spent where it is needed. Do you have some evidence to show that
is the cause?

I understand that you don’t value capacity building. Many other members of the
community have expressed a strong desire for it and it has definitely helped
accelerate the pace of development in the region.

I would hope, in part, that they listen to the full community and look at the
genuine needs overall and make reasonable decisions as to the fiscal management
of the organization.

So far, I think that’s mostly what is happening.
