The NNN is here to provide a common sustainable platform where all non-profit organizations, non-government organizations, government entities, and individual volunteers helping Nicaragua can share knowledge, resources, experiences, and accomplishments.
How does it work:
The NNN is a networking platform equipped with a variety of technologies that will greatly assist in helping organizations find and collaborate with one another. The NNN platform will provide greater visibility of the individual and collective efforts of all community development organizations working within the country of Nicaragua.
Why is networking humanitarian efforts important?
Humanitarian organizations that do not network and collaborate with one another can experience organizational inefficiencies, a lack of overall efficacy, and in some cases may have a negative impact on the communities they aim to serve.
Active collaboration between organizations results in better allocation of humanitarian efforts, more effective implementation of programs, and more responsible and efficient usage of charitable donations at the end of the day.
How can you network with someone that you don't know is there?
Its a common problem the world over: Many organizations, individual volunteers, and government entities are more than willing to network and collaborate with other programs...if they could find them. The problem is that they are largely unaware that they exist at all.
Larger organizations may maintain more visibility, but the majority of humanitarian groups by number are smaller and lack visibility or marketing measures needed to denote their presence in an area. In these cases there is a will, but there is not a way to connect and work collaboratively.
The issue with uncoordinated philanthropy
If development programs unknowingly overlap they may cause harm. In some cases the harm may be negligible, but in other more severe cases the harm can be quite serious on a physical, infrastructural, or emotional level for the receiving community.
However, if development programs overlap their efforts in an effective and collaborative manner, the positive effects on the receiving community can be far beyond the capabilities of the organizations on their own.
