I say it again and again: Solid waste management is not my forte.
But sometimes we are thrust into situations that we are not exactly prepared for, or desire, for that matter. Yesterday afternoon, I was at the Parish of St. James the Apostle in Betis to conduct a solid waste management orientation. I did not expect the audience to be mainly the truck drivers and garbage collectors of several barangays.
I had my PowerPoint presentations but the room we were in was too bright. Well, I flashed the slides and tried to translate the text into my best Capampangan. Wow, I think I made a miserable fool of myself. I had a few enthusiastic souls though. But that’s not my point.
I’m posting this online to remind myself to have someone translate my materials into the vernacular and to please, please, please find funds to make flipcharts for situations when an LCD projector is not appropriate for the situation.
