Kisskissbankbank How to start a successful NGO in 10 steps Photo by Ryan Libre . Ryan Libre explains how to start a successful NGO. Editor’s Note: In response to the overwhelming number of comments, author Ryan Libre has asked us to post this update on April 4, 2010: “It is amazing to see how many people have seen and commented on this article. I’ve worked with NGOs for most of my life, and even helped start a few. The following steps will help get your own NGO up and running: Step 1: Test the waters. Many new activists are ready to commit their lives to “the cause.” There’s no need to turn down the volume of your enthusiasm, but before starting your own NGO, consider joining one that does similar work for a while.

Meet the Children’s Book Author: Dorinda Williams We’re looking forward to next week’s web conference, Using Books in Child Care to Connect with Military Children’s Lives. We hope you are, too! Children’s books are a uniquely powerful way to get in sync with young children’s thoughts and feelings, especially around difficult situations they may be going through. But finding just the right children’s book to address a situation can be a real challenge. During the web conference we’ll be previewing a new resource that will be available in the fall: a searchable database of children’s books that will make that task a lot easier! Included in our collection are books specifically written for young children from military families that deal with issues such as deployment or homecoming of a parent. We asked Dorinda to share more about the books she has authored, her tips for sharing those books with young children, and her vision for CTAMF. About the books How did the idea to create children’s books come about? Did you enjoy writing the books?

I have served in the Nebraska Army National Guard for seven years now, and it has been a great opportunity to build myself as a person. I have been able to improve leadership skills, physical fitness, planning, self defense, and many other aspects. I had the honor of serving with Nebraska Agribusiness Development Team Two (NE ADT 2) in Afghanistan from June 2011 through May 2012. One of the best experiences from my deployment was the friendships I made within our unit. somewhere outside the wire are people that want to kill you. As a veteran, there are times when people will thank me for my service and I am not sure how to respond. On this day of remembrance, I say thank you to those I have had the opportunity to serve with, those who served before us, and those who are still in harm’s way. Like this: Like Loading...
