"Shift the power is the name of a broadly supported development in the world of poverty reduction", It's read on the website of Dutch NGO 'Wilde Ganzen'. It refers to shifting the power from north to south. From western NGOs and foundations to local communities. But also from men to women. A crucial change: not the parties that leave one day, but the people who stay are the owners. As an owner you really feel and take responsibility. Shift the power is the key to successful and truly sustainable initiatives.
