Can we improve our work of NGOs in both North and South?
1 - Further report on what happens in the North and South and affects what is done in the South and affected populations.
2 - Involve the governments of these countries in the development of their populations, assuming no spaces of states, in any case, reinforcing and complementing the actions of the state.
3 - Assuming that we are not "the solution to the problems of the South" and that we sin often ineffective.
4 - Putting off a unique insight into what should be the development, involving more organizations to which we work in that improvement process.
5 - Report abuse of the Administration in the North and the South, specifically in relation to the use of public funds for development. Avoiding or at least not participating in the diversion of these funds to their own interests.
6 - Do not fear to internal changes in organizations, leaving more room for dialogue and exchange with other organizations, space is not practiced and has long been an outstanding work.
7 - Giving up the leadership role and, in any case giving it the real actors from the South to either civil society that allows us to do.
8 - To focus more on changing our own society, this is where there is real work, this is where it is consumed in an unbalanced way, which produces tons of garbage, and where through our political representatives are decided or that help the fate of millions of human beings.
And as the great Paulo Freire: "we are going." We need a new reading of the world of cooperation, where we can clearly define "world and that world we are creating."
