Why a blog?

11 Mar

Our blog seeks to inform the global north, specifically those going abroad on humanitarian trips, about harmful assumptions that create unequal power relations between the ‘donor’ and ‘recipient’ countries. These assumptions are visible in the policies and language of many development programs. We hope to provide suggestions for an alternative model of educational programs, encouraging a dialogue between the global north and south, and centered around the importance of creating partnerships as opposed to approaches that implement solutions based on Western ideals alone.
