Today I worked to put together a three-year work-plan for our activities under the grant. Conferences, round-tables, fellowships, and assorted "capacity-building" exercise to try to increase the number and effectiveness of China's meager nonprofits. In the end, the success of our program will be determined by how well we satisfy our donor. This work is not demand-driven. Few if any people in these parts come to us and say, there is a pressing need for your work so please provide it. Instead, it is the organization -- acting as the proxy of the donor -- which approaches poor organizations and says, in effect, we have a pot of money here and we'd like to share if with you if you agree to co-operate with us on certain projects.
