The Wapichan people have set an example for all communities to follow

Dear Editor,

Congratulations and deep appreciation are extended to the South Rupununi District Council. The Wapichan peoples have set a vital example for all communities in Guyana to follow. They are using technology to monitor the environment and to seek justice for the violations.

Imagine if every Village, Neighbourhood Democratic Council, Regional Democratic Council  did the same thing ‒ created their own databases and monitored the assets and resources. Imagine if every Village, NDC and RDC was able to monitor the drainage and other systems. The technology is available. The skills can be transferred.

The Wapichan people have shown the rest of us Guyanese that we can use technology to transform how we look after our communities and the environment.

Yours faithfully,
