First off, I want to say thank you to everyone that read and commented on my “Making Charity Transparent” blog post. Also, I’d like to send a quick thanks to the good people at WordPress, for putting my post on the “Freshly Pressed” section. Without your help, the great work that Charity Water is doing and the promotion of utilizing technology to improve the non-profit sector wouldn’t have received the readership that it would’ve otherwise.
That said, I wanted to take the time to write about an idea I had in regards to how technology can be utilized to improve international development. It’s always been my thinking, that although bureaucracy and having a strong internal infrastructure in the non-profit sector can be effective, other times it can be counterproductive by limiting streamlined action and the ability to react quickly to the current task at hand.
