The Networked NGO in Pakistan

Beth Kanter

This year a lot of my work as Visiting Scholar at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation is working with grantees outside of the US. Last week, I had the pleasure of working with a group of Population and Reproductive Health grantees from Pakistan on a peer learning group called “ The Networked NGO ,” based on the ideas in my book, The Networked Nonprofit. The four-day intensive face-to-face training was for senior level staff and their social media staffers.

The Faces of International Development

But wait, are people in developing areas, and even rural areas, even getting access to the web and/or to mobile technology? Can we really debate one laptop per child and mobile access when kids may really just need food, clothes and school books? Empowerment is key. Congratulations to SID for encouraging empowerment and asking organizations to step back and really focus on where the heart of their international development pursuit lies.

I am very excited about upcoming peer learning projects that I’m working on in 2012, including several for Packard grantees in India, Pakistan, and Africa as well as the e-Mediat project in the Middle East. Students get a minute to think about the question on their own and then answer it using a mobile device that sends their answers to Mazur’s laptop.
