The famous drop in the ocean. In other words, “an ineffective trifle or too little to be little that it could be effective”. Again and again, we are asked whether the work of MB is not just a drop in the ocean.
Of course, it is not. Even if only one child’s life could be saved with MB’s budget, this saved life would be far more than just a drop in the ocean.
MB proves on a small scale what is possible. The impact goes beyond MB. It rejoices and and encourages the people who come into contact with MB in Guinea. And MB, with its unique collaboration between staff, children, friends and local actors, demonstrates that a whole structure can only be harmonious if its individual parts are harmonious as well.
We have now reached an optimal size with an (almost) optimal efficiency. So, the work of MB will not change. But the drop in the ocean will continue to have an effect and MB will continue to reach out to vulnerable people.
In 2023, we are concerned with stabilising our adapted structure and the quality of our work.
