Ted Talk about the Roles of NGOs Level: intermediate
Ernesto Sirolli got his start doing aid work in Africa in the 70's — and quickly realised how ineffective it was.
Why you should listen
Ernesto Sirolli is a noted authority in the field of sustainable
economic development and is the Founder of the Sirolli Institute, an
international non-profit organization that teaches community leaders how
to establish and maintain Enterprise Facilitation projects in their
community. The Institute is now training communities in the USA, Canada,
Australia, England and Scotland.
In 1985, he pioneered in
Esperance, a small rural community in Western Australia, a unique
economic development approach based on harnessing the passion,
determination, intelligence, and resourcefulness of the local people.
The striking results of "The Esperance Experience" have prompted more
than 250 communities around the world to adopt responsive,
person-centered approaches to local economic development similar to the
Enterprise Facilitation® model pioneered in Esperance.
