Yes. Are you suggesting that Tola and his organization are pushing people to suicide? Did you arrive at this from another cursory study of the newspapers?
You may be on to something here. At the very least his organization has been ineffective if you consider the measure of his success as result based.
How do you measure success? What cost do you put on a human life? Please answer honestly. As far as I am concerned, if one life was saved, it's success.
Success is result based. Ever since Tola's organization have operated in Guyana we have seen the suicide rate rising, we can assume zero impact. Today Guyana is at the 1 and 2 position as the country with the highest suicide rate per capita on two different rating systems.
We should not all be like cattle, afraid to question effectiveness and validity of these fly by night organizations because we are afraid to be labelled as politically incorrect. A lot of these groups are not held accountable, they hold fund raisers, solicit donations from businesses and individuals but offer no visibility into how the money is spent and what percent actually goes to help vulnerable people. In addition Tola was asked for years to provide this information about his organization but always found an excuse to dodge the questions.
There is no evidence, nor can there be that would show that any lives were saved. What we can measure is from a holistic approach, the suicide rate over time. This is how the police measure crime fighting, pollution is measured etc. Why not suicide.
