I do not normally jump on the SWEDOW bandwagon. It seems the most salient arguments are made again and again, and frankly, it’s often too easy of a criticism.
But whenever the latest blogosphere or Twitter uproar occurs (see Nick Kristof’s latest appeal for old prom or bridesmaid dresses or this…Continue

Then you should take this survey.
In other words, it’s for people who read aid blogs.
Why should you bother? For one reason, it's short. It's also anonymous. And most notably, your interests and habits are important to us, the bloggers.
See what the @SmartAid folks and other bloggers have to say about the survey via…Continue

BrandOutLoud works with aid organizations, local and international, to transform the pity-laden us/them paradigm used in many communications strategies to one that portrays the strengths and…

When the jungle safari of Chapramari National Park organized by Forest Department of West Bengal concluded without a sight of Gaur or (thankfully) Royal Bengal Tiger and our Land Rover cruised into the disembarkation point, I was up for a pleasant surprise.
The tourists were given a complementary tea with a throw-in tribal dance. I cannot say I like such blatant show of a ‘culture’ in a song and…Continue

Richard Moore describes himself as “just a guy who wanted to help.”
This is somehow funny coming from a man whom the Dalai Lama refers to as “my hero.”
Well known to the residents of Derry, Ireland, where we met last month, Richard Moore was shot at the age of 10 by a British solider on his way home from school. Taking a rubber bullet on the bridge of his nose, Richard lost…Continue

Readers of how-matters.org may already be familiar with previous arguments I’ve offered for the increased inclusion of and investment in community-based organizations (CBOs). As an ardent proponent of CBOs’ comparative advantages, I believe they have a better chance of being driven by “the…Continue

Worth to follow the today starting UNFCCC Climate Conference (Bonn Germany) which is important last preparation meeting before the December Climate Summit in Durbain South Africa. Hopefully nation's representatives will find out what to do how to step forward and how to extend/renew the soon expiring Kyoto Protocol. Especially in review that (as per the latest International Energy Agency…Continue
