GREEN EMPOWERMENT
January 6, 2012

As a former Peace Corps volunteer, I am excruciatingly conscious of how hard it is to implement a successful development project. Money doesn't correlate with success. Great ideas don't correlate with success. Overwhelming need for the project doesn't correlate with success. What seems to work most reliably is to keep the focus on the human relationships that underpin the technological and logistical aspects of the project. I am such an enthusiastic supporter of Green Empowerment because I feel they are one of the rare organizations that really get it--that development isn't about rolling out some shiny new mechanical marvel, but about methodically building up the social preconditions for success.
