Philanthropy is a great way of addressing systemic issues by creating lasting change. The Kubunina team did philanthropic work by going to Congo and creating opportunities that would work for the Congolese even after the project was completed. The motivation of volunteers towards the project and the willingness of Congolese nationalities to get help led to the project’s success. The aspect that caught my eye was project management’s use to better the lives of the Congolese people (Cobos, E. 2013).
The project scope was specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-based, which led to the project’s success. The project had three clear objectives, and the project team had developed a work breakdown structure that helped them attain the objectives. The objectives were specific, and that allowed for the actualization of them.
The project’s objectives were also measurable, with the Kubunina team set to achieve all the objectives in two years, which they did. They created income-generating activities, promoted free access to culture, and taught children and youth how to be autonomous.
The laid-out project objectives were also attainable. At the end of the project, all objectives set were achieved. The goals were also relevant; the Congolese requested the help of PMI, who came and helped them, showing that the objectives were relevant. In addition, the set objectives were also time-based. The project team planned on assisting the Congolese so that they could help themselves after the team had left.
The results of the project could be seen after one year of implementation. The participatory approach applied during the performance of the project forged the project’s success. Congolese nationals were ready to help and be helped, and the project team was prepared to realize their goals. All the participation and motivation accelerated the rate of accomplishment.
In conclusion, project management was used to make lives better for the Congolese. The attainment of the objectives left both sides satisfied. Motivation from both sides and SMART objectives allows project success. Project management can, therefore, be used to enhance good in society.
