Charities – project or process?

Filed under: News and Politics — chriscroft @ 9:37 pm

Why are children still starving in Africa, after all the money we’ve sent?? Ideally charities would make a difference, rather than be self-perpetuating organisations.

So to find out whether your Charity is a project or a process, ask them these:

1 – When is the project that I am contributing to due to end?
2 – When it ends, how will you measure its level of success?
3 – How will you communicate this success (or not) to me?

No decent answers to these? – No money from me!



  1. Love it.

  2. In fact, why not go up to “chugger” whilst they are speaking to another member of the community, and ask them the questions then? After all, it will only take a few minutes….
