Josh13's Review for International Development Exchange (Idex)
I have been inspired by the work the IDEX team and community have done to help identify the best ideas for alleviating poverty and injustice. By building a community of impassioned supporters and connecting them to local leaders and organization, they are having an incredibly positive impact on the communities the organization serves. One of the most impressive aspects of the organization is its focus not on self-congratulatory branding campaigns, but focusing all attention on the mission and communities it serves.
