Hallo - This is Somaye Dehban, a networked Dutchified Iranian who is on a mission to bring about financial stability for every community-based organization and initiative.

In Episode #1: Prologue, I talk about my mother's activities as a legendary community-based fundraiser and why we need to focus on community-based fundraising to bring about sustainable change. I also talk about why I am advocating for defining an "exit point" for development aid.

Join me every 3rd Tuesday of the month to hear about the role of community-based organizations in achieving sustainable development goals, and how to diversify funding resources of your local initiative and increase your self-financing for a sustainable and durable change.
