The coordinator of the non-profit organization I'm volunteering for kindly spent a time for me at a coffee shop today.
He mentioned the book by Jeffrey Sachs, "The End of Poverty". I bought the book right away. The back cover had a comment by Jared Diamond, the author of "Collapse", which I enjoyed reading (actually, listening to its audiobook).
Also he mentioned the concept of "Integrated Community Development".
I list the programs/organizations he mentioned:
- Millennium Promise
- Aga Khan Foundation
- Dhan Foundation
- Habitat for Humanity
- Opportunity International, also Opportunity International Canada
I am very excited.
