If anyone ever asks you why Civil Servants or politicians should blog, send them over to Martin Leach’s most recent post.
Martin is one of the DFID bloggers that we’ve been coaching. He’s recently arrived in Kigali, Rwanda as Head of DFID Rwanda. He’s just published a post called Dear Olly that drives home the human nature of the work of DFID in the developing world.
The post is really well written. It is personal. It links the UK with Rwanda. It explains part of DFID’s important work in the country. It gives you hope that things are improving.
Please go read it, tell your colleagues to read it and tell your bosses to read it. Then read some more of the DFID bloggers. They are doing a fantastic job of telling the story of DFID’s work in a real and human way.
