LIAISON operated providing information and referral services to the community. The local media was supportive in
communicating its existence and mission: there was evidence of a successful start up to the initiative.
Working on the sidelines, COPRAS was preparing the grounds for the continuity of the services, once the project funding
would terminate. Meetings with representatives from the Ministère des affaires sociales and local organizations were productive.
However, the success of the project in providing direct services, the ambitions of community spokes-people and plain internal
politics provided LIAISON with new options for its staff. COPRAS supported them objectively.
