If you read one thing this week, make it this story entitled “Beyond Beneficiaries.”

It discusses the growing number of civil-society organizations (CSOs) that have organized them selves to develop their own communities. The author, Lisa Schirch, believes that while large NGOs and government organizations praise the idea of local leadership, they often complain of the lack of it.

 

“The landscape of ‘locally-led development’ is more varied and rich than many in the international development community acknowledge,” writes author Lisa Schirch. “[It] needs a more robust understanding of local civic society.”

 

The entire article is available to read in the July Issue of Monday Developments Magazine. The entire issue can be downloaded here and the article begins on page eight.
