Maybe it's an issue to do with sustainability and continuity? Even 
web-sites gather cob-webs when relying on volunteer time :)

Ahh! Water. You mean remuneration. I'm sure that can be discussed too, 
except I found that can be expensive especially for NGO work - tobacco 
control, community support network etc.

Is there a directory of open source expertise (local I mean) that I can 
look up and locate the appropriate. Every time I meet Uwe, I asked him
