(The Humanitarian Social Network)
What aid jargon do you hate?
Or if you hate hating, what aid jargon makes you roll your eyes and click on to the next thing?
"Maximizing synergy", maybe? Or "facipulation?" How about "capacity building"? Or "voluntourism"?
Let it all hang out in the thread below...
"capacity building", "ownership", empowerment"....hate them :-), moreover when accompanied by a visual narrative full of brown babies (either smiling or starving) and veiled women in front of computers...
I agree on the probably almost veiled illiterate veiled women in front of computers
I truly hate teacher's training. And many mobile teacher's training team.
I do not understand why health and education staff are treated differently.
wel I normally "hate" all visual narratives used in the humanitarian sector...veiled empowered women have sometimes replaced malnourisehd brown babies but still.
I hate also the categorizations these narratives (visual or verbal) entail and produce, and their crap consequences at many levels.
