How would I make aid better....

Posted on July 31, 2012 at 8:43am 3 Comments

I don't have my own blog so I get extra extra credit for doing this JUST on aid source :)  Also, this is quick and dirty.  I just opened up a window and am going to start typing--for half an hour since that's how much time I have just now.  So here goes!  (oh and views mine, not employers etc etc).

Here's what we are looking at:

Let’s imagine that you could make three changes to the state of things in the aid industry. Forget practicality and…


Health coaching for humanitarians

I'm LIVE!  And I am putting it out there...I am writing because I’m very excited to share something new and good that is happening in my life.  It’s new and exciting but to be honest, also a bit scary (ok, MORE than a bit) to be putting myself out there like this.  I’m doing it because I DO think it’s important and something missing in our sector.

I’m enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I am learning to become a Health and Lifestyle Coach.  I am now officially…


Inability to Switch Off (ITSO).

Posted on March 7, 2012 at 1:04am 0 Comments

At the start of 2012, there was lots of pieces on how we live life in the digital age.  There are obvious advantages to this with new technologies and how we can use them to reach out to people and help populations however, there is a disadvantage as well.  I came across the term ITSO, or the inability to switch off from this New York Times article called A Time to Tune Out by Roger Cohen.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakwale300@gmail.com) ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Stella.

Hi Zehra, Oh you're at the Women's Refugee Commission! Sure, would love to talk about collaborating if/when it's practical. Rock on! djgerstle@yahoo.com

Thanks Z. I'm working on the road, so if you want to chat any time is cool. And yeah of course a coffee or drink when I'm back in New York. Which organization? You peaked my curiosity!

Hey Zehra, How are you? Thanks for the compliment on our org, Humanitarian Bazaar, and for following. I have been wanting to be a part of an aid worker social circle in New York for some time, so I will try to catch up for a drink or one of these dinners soon! Right now I'm on the road for a few weeks, but will be back in New York soon! Hope you are well, - Daniel
