Asset base mapping!

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

I have said it before and I’ll say it again
Minister Farber has the potential to be a household legend
Most people think that the ministry of finance is the most powerful
But in reality it’s the ministry of education that is the most transformable
This guy has power at his grasp
This guy controls scholarships, just ask
This guy is seeking out people and finding stable and proper mentors
Using his foot soldiers
He is changing the dynamics this country
By holding public meetings in his constituency

I remember the days of street hoops
A strategy employed by NDACC to inform some youths
Like I keep suggesting, he needs to support Stikz’s day of healing
He needs to get social workers in these areas to do some assessing
He needs to be championing diversified skills
Belize has a quota of agricultural produce to fill
Aquaculture is an avenue upon which we can build
He has to push agro-business as an industry
Building the human capacities of the citizenry in the country
By giving them a diversity of skills
He needs to get into his constituency
And do asset mapping and asset base development
Invest in his constituents, making them less dependent

He is looking at the positive in his community and allowing them to flourish
He is ensuring that the children in his constituencies are not mal nourished
He is giving both PUP and UDP scholarships
Word on the street is that he is not prejudice
Unlike Mark King and the PM and their bullshit
I wish he could teach this to the rest of his conduits
I will give the devil what he is due
For these efforts Minister Farber I’ll salute you
Even though I am not red nor blue

I am also calling on you to engage to boys in khaki and blue
Particularly the ZBLO crew
To engage the schools, countrywide
With the program named PRIDE
They have had an impact
I urge you the bring the school liaison officer program back
All high schools need that, we have to be proactive and not just react
You said it yourself that crime is everybody’s business
So please consider these three initiatives.
