Getting BoP Products in Consumers’ Hands—MFIs and Micro-dealers Can Help Great article about the role the MFI’s can take in the distribution of products to the consumers in BOP. Anyone with experience working with the BoP knows this: the poor are hard to reach. Living in isolated settlements on the outskirts of cities or in far-flung rural villages, it is no easy chore to reach a BoP member – physically or in marketing – to sell a product. How, then, can we get cutting-edge products and innovations in the hands of those that need them the most?  The key is to foster a deep connection and relationship with a large network of BoP consumers, with the help of MFIs, micro-dealers, and other means. MFIs can provide valuable pathways to penetrate the depths of the BoP, especially because of BoP consumers’ predilections for credit, but it is important to protect the processes that support the original product, the micro-loan.

Stretching the Fabric of MFI Networks a study from Monitor group which includes case studies, viable models and recommendations for MFIs and P/S providers for BOP.

Geçen haftaki linkler Epic Change’in yeni sosyal medya kampanyası, Facebook’un yeni yaptığı değişklikleri ve Echoing Green’in finalistleri ile ilgili. Bildiğiniz gibi delicious ve twitter hesabımdan sosyal değişim ve sosyal teknolojiler hakkındaki linklere ulaşabilirsiniz.

Mother’s Day for Mama Lucy: Another great social media campaign from Epic Change. To Mama With Love is a collaborative online art project that honors moms across the globe and raises funds to invest in one remarkable Mama who dreams of building a home for children in her village.  Funds raised will be invested in support of Mama Lucy Kamptoni, a remarkable grassroots changemaker in Tanzania who once sold chickens and used her income to build a primary school that now provides a high-quality education to over 400 children in Arusha.  Her next goal, which To Mama With Love seeks to fund, is to build a boarding facility on campus so that every child who attends her school has a place to call home.

Sonunda bir evim (daha doğrusu bir odam var). Hem yaşayıp, hem çalışabileceğim bir mekan. Pazartesinden itibaren son sürat çalışmaya devam. Zaman çok hızlı akıyor ne de olsa.

Neyse çok uzatmadan 01-07 Şubat arası radarıma takılanları paylaşayım:

Greenpeace sosyal medya ve topluluk yönetimi alanında, Türkiye’deki STKlar arasında fark yaratıyor bence. 2 örnekle açıklamaya çalışayım:

Öykü’nün Öyküsü adlı post, hem Greenpeace içinde yer alan bir aktivistin Greenpeace serüveninden bahsediyor, hem de Radyoaktivist olmak isteyen, Nükleer’e karşı harekete geçmek isteyenlere çok basit ve açık olarak nasıl yardım edebileceklerini söylüyor. Postda çok fazla yorum var, ancak kaç kişiye ulaşıldığını gerçekten merak ediyorum. Belki Öykü bize bir şeyler söyler sonuçlar hakkında? 🙂

Hatasız Kul OLmaz yine Greenpeace blogunda yer alan bir yazı. I Lovve Nuclear projesi ve online iletişimleri konusundaki anketi doldurarak Greenpeace’e yardım eden destekçilere nasıl teşekkür ederiz diye düşünmüşler ve bir hediye vermeye karar vermişler. 12 Şubat 2010 Cuma gününe kadar ankete katılanlar arasından 10 Greenpeace dostuna süper bir Greenpeace tişörtü var. Ben doldurdum bile 🙂

4 Facebook Tips for Non-Profit Success Facebook is an ever growing force in the internet space and it looks like it will be for a while. With 200 Million users (and growing) it’s hard to ague otherwise. Facebook is also a great tool for nonprofits. It’s free, it gives you an immediate way to build a tribe and engage people in online community. Facebook also gives others the ability to share their affinity to you with their friends, family and co-workers. That said, you can’t just throw up a page and expect to be successful. You have to be thoughtful, strategic and knowledgeable.
