At the September 16 gathering of Transition Asheville, we heard Laurie Timmerman share from her decades of experience working with government, commercial, United Nations, and non-profit organizations to provide development assistance and aid to diminish hunger and poverty. They often work collaboratively, and with definite guidelines and structures to assure that funded projects can have lasting effects.
Laurie mentioned a number of organizations that she believes do good work and have significant impact in alleviating problems related to sustainability, hunger, water, agriculture, education and climate. Take a look at their websites for more information.
