I discussed in my previous blog some typology of development actions. Let me think of ways a FilAm may contribute to nation-building.
A. If I committed 1 hour per month-
I’d study the Youtubes on Philippine Local Governance, a little at a time, then start gathering data on my hometown or do online volunteer work for a Phil.-based NGO.
B. If I committed 2 hours per month
I’d choose a sector related to my field, find a Philippine-based collaborator, and start a joint blog comparing systems and identifying doable steps for possible Philippine implementation.
C. If I committed 3 hours per month
I’d look for an NGO doing work in my area of interest and in the country I am in, and do 1 hour of volunteer work with them per week. That will enrich and ground the 2 hours I spend doing letter B. Contact us at MolaveDev. We might be able to link you up.
D. If I committed 4 hours per month
I’d co-direct with a Philippine NGO program a public interest project, collaborating via email, Skype, chat, etc.
