Penny Goldsmith, PovNet’s Executive Coordinator, has been awarded the Carold Institute’s Allan Thomas Fellowship to Promote Civil Society and Voluntary Action.
“I will be using this sabbatical to document the history of PovNet as a vehicle for social change. My research will focus on PovNet’s contribution to work with individual clients through community advocates, its use as a vehicle for policy changes in government ministries and as a network for facilitating systemic change in social attitudes towards people living in poverty. I will be preparing a casebook to help communities integrate online tools for information sharing and social justice networking into their practice.”
I’m looking for comments, reflections, suggestions and anything else you have to say about the PovNet experience, so please, feel free to post responses to my blog entries …PG
