Sources of power

When you think of a powerful person, you might imagine a wealthy, well-fed business man in a suit and tie or it might be an army general with access to weapons. But would you think of a mother? Or a mechanic?

You could think of a mother’s power as the power of love, and the power to shape the learning of her children. A mechanic has power to fix things using his or her skills. Laws, knowledge, social position, resources, creativity, commitment – these are some of the diverse sources of power in our societies. Poultry farm run by Commonwealth Youth Award Winners in Samoa.
