To get you started the next few pages will help you to start thinking about planning and your community.
The planning iceberg
A project can be compared to an iceberg. Think of a project you know about in your community. What do you know about it? You usually just see the activities of the project. For example, you may attend a family literacy night or see a family literacy poster up in the community. These things are visible – just like the tip of an iceberg.
What we sometimes take for granted, or don’t see, are all the activities and resources that go into making a program or project happen. Planning is one of these activities.
