Africa Bridge Planning Efforts Focus on Creating
and Enhancing Communication
Reola Phelps, principal of Headwaters Leadership Group, is a member of
the volunteer board of Africa
Bridge, a non-profit organization that
serves children made vulnerable by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Tanzania.
Recently, Reola visited the village of Idweli where Africa Bridge
has built an orphanage and pre-school. The staff and village Governing
Board members had the drive and energy to make the Center work, but the
policies, processes and skills to run a Center of this type had not been
developed. Reola, with the help of other Africa Bridge leaders, planned
and conducted an onsite strategic and organizational planning session
with the Idweli leadership that focused on identifying goals, creating
policies, resolving conflicts and getting results.
