Panel discussion report 36: Charity organizations are the more preferable organizations for the sust

Overview of the points discussed Sustainable development comes from different ways in the society. Civil society organizations (CSOs) and Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) play a major role in development progress. Different kind of Civil society organizations (CSOs) and Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) participating on that. In my viewpoint, charity organizations are the more preferable organizations for the sustainable development. Empowering people through financial aids. Normally people have their own skills in business agriculture and so and so forth, but they do not have financial support to implement their projects. As they do not have no capital to start up their work charity organizations may be part in helping them to fulfill their needs. One of the major businesses in Sri Lanka is gem. People who are engaged to this business are professional in gem cutting and they only use traditional methods in their work as they cannot effort for the modern equipment and machineries, if they will be given with those equipment’s they can maximize their productivity. The charitable organizations giving hand for their successful business nowadays. Traditional income source of Sri Lanka is paddy. Farmers use manual methods for harvesting. It takes a long time to put their goods in the market. In this situation, the new generations lose interest in involving in these traditional businesses. So funding organizations need to support them for new machineries in their field. Charity organizations evaluate the community needs and help them for their sustainable development. In addition, they help the people who were affected from war and natural disasters by fulfilling their basic needs, such as food, cloths, and tents and so on. There was a question posted by the moderator, do not you think the Charity organizations are making people lazy? The question was a controversial issue all around. In my viewpoint, charity organization will not give money to the people for their day-to-day expenses. It will certainly make people lazy. These civil service organizations will not provide them directly with the money, they provide things like equipment, machineries etc., to build up their own industry. It also depends on situations where the charity organizations will have to fulfill the daily expenses of those people. We need to consider this issue here; when the people are affected by war and natural disaster we cannot give equipment or machineries for them. During those times, charitable organizations provide food cloths and so on. Because the need a time to recover themselves. After that they help them by other things. For an example, in 2004 December, after the Tsunami attack civil service groups aid them by building houses for who are in need. Then they help them by giving boat for the fishermen in installment basis and micro finance systems. I believe that the people will not become lazy from this kind of activity. The process Planning I started taking preparation before one week and started collecting information regarding this area. I got information from many sources such as online sources, books and especially from my colleagues. Then I took short notes about the points. After I have collected all this informations and understood the contents Points of agreement and disagreement. • The first panelist talked that the Skill development organizations better solution for the sustainable development. • Myself I spoke about the charitable organizations. • Third panelist, he talked the development through the combination of skill and charity organization in society. • The fourth panelist considered about the physical contributions in society by Civil society organization

The implementation Describe the satisfaction (what was good about your panel discussion) • All the members co-operated each other in sharing their views. • The moderator played his role very well. • Overall, we expressed ourselves in panel discussion.

Describe the dissatisfaction • We could not have a successful rehearsal session before did the real panel discussion and we did only two rehearsals before our panel. • I felt that I must have prepared more for the panel discussion and also I felt that my points were not enough to explain my topic • The topic we were chosen was not a very good argumentative issue.

Learning / reflection of the panel discussion On the speech made Although I prepared myself to a certain step, when I come to the penal discussion; I felt so nervous that I thought I will not be able to speak However, I tried to put my points in the speech, but I confused with my points what I have to deliver after the first minute I became calm and carried on the talk smoothly. Anyway, I realized that I need more preparation before a speech. I need to but in order my points. The best thing that I spoke by my own words, rather than a reading or memorized speech. All in all, this panel discussion has developed not only my communication skill and also my knowledge regarding the topic

Overview of the points discussed Sustainable development comes from different ways in the society. Civil society organizations (CSOs) and Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) play a major role in development progress. Different kind of Civil society organizations (CSOs) and Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) participating on that. In my viewpoint, charity organizations are the more preferable organizations for the sustainable development. Empowering people through financial aids. Normally people have their own skills in business agriculture and so and so forth, but they do not have financial support to implement their projects. As they do not have no capital to start up their work charity organizations may be part in helping them to fulfill their needs. One of the major businesses in Sri Lanka is gem. People who are engaged to this business are professional in gem cutting and they only use traditional methods in their work as they cannot effort for the modern equipment and machineries, if they will be given with those equipment’s they can maximize their productivity. The charitable organizations giving hand for their successful business nowadays. Traditional income source of Sri Lanka is paddy. Farmers use manual methods for harvesting. It takes a long time to put their goods in the market. In this situation, the new generations lose interest in involving in these traditional businesses. So funding organizations need to support them for new machineries in their field. Charity organizations evaluate the community needs and help them for their sustainable development. In addition, they help the people who were affected from war and natural disasters by fulfilling their basic needs, such as food, cloths, and tents and so on. There was a question posted by the moderator, do not you think the Charity organizations are making people lazy? The question was a controversial issue all around. In my viewpoint, charity organization will not give money to the people for their day-to-day expenses. It will certainly make people lazy. These civil service organizations will not provide them directly with the money, they provide things like equipment, machineries etc., to build up their own industry. It also depends on situations where the charity organizations will have to fulfill the daily expenses of those people. We need to consider this issue here; when the people are affected by war and natural disaster we cannot give equipment or machineries for them. During those times, charitable organizations provide food cloths and so on. Because the need a time to recover themselves. After that they help them by other things. For an example, in 2004 December, after the Tsunami attack civil service groups aid them by building houses for who are in need. Then they help them by giving boat for the fishermen in installment basis and micro finance systems. I believe that the people will not become lazy from this kind of activity.
