From the Physical to the Virtual: Navigating NGOs in New Spaces

With new technologies readily available, there has been a rise in virtual NGOs.  Navigating the space in which such NGOs exist was the topic of one of the Interaction 2014 Forums. 

Several different ideas were discussed in this workshop and among those that I found to be most interesting, was that of membership.  Specifically, the workshop touched on the changes in defining membership, where in the past, members were those who simply donated money. …

The Power of No

Imagine not being able to turn away from a problem that you see in this world. You are compelled by a sense of responsibility, passion, and the audacity to believe that you can do something about that problem. You have decided to take the leap and start an organization, an initiative, or a social enterprise.

To do so, you of course need resources. You don’t have them. You have to ask those with money to invest in you.

Imagine sitting across the table from a potential donor,…

Hallowed Halls or Ghost Towns?

This week I re-entered an aid “institution” after five years of working with small foundations and local groups.

After just two short days, I can’t help but be reminded of why I left.

I am once again surrounded by smart, driven, committed people. But unfortunately they are largely a group of people who are also exhausted, overwhelmed, and discouraged by fighting while propagating the very organizations in which they serve. From my still outsider’s perspective, it’s as if the…

So what does that enable Marc to do as an aid worker? Marc develops new conceptual approaches to solving "impossible" problems, of which there are many in international development.…
