Over the past 5 decades, aid & development have grown into a multi-billion dollar business, yet little has changed for the millions of poor around the world. So where does all the money go? Few who donate to international charities realize what happens to their money once it hits the machinery of an industry that is very much part of the problem it aims to address.
After over a decade in the international aid & development sector, working for some of the world's top international charities, R.B. Landeck shares first-hand experiences and takes you behind the scenes, beyond the sex scandals, the rampant wastage and quirky personalities that are all pieces of the often both tragic & funny universe that is international aid; exploring why things aren't working, how you have the power to change it all and why despite everything, you should not only give more, but in a way that your hard-earned cash actually achieves the desired impact.
