What we're about

Do you work in international development? Have you thought about getting into it? Are you interested in learning more? This group is for anyone interested in NGOs, grant writing, working in the field, and everything "development." These networking events will help gather people with similar interests so we can make new friends, establish meaningful connections, and maybe even learn a thing or two. Eventually, I'd love to bring in guest speakers who have knowledge about a particular topic (how to best use social media, planning a fundraiser, etc.), so if you have ideas for topics or for potential guest speakers, please let me know!
