How can philanthropy make a real impact?


Philanthropy can make a real impact by focusing on vital needs and involving the beneficiary communities, as evidenced by the work of Scott Harrison, the CEO of Charity: Water. Harrison's approach includes hands-on involvement and understanding the direct effects of charitable efforts. For example, during a visit to Ethiopia where a well had been built by Charity: Water, the overwhelming positive reception from the local community highlighted the significant impact such philanthropic efforts can have. This approach not only addresses immediate needs but also builds trust and relationships within the community 1 .
