Hello, and welcome to The Third World Monitor. My name is Neil and I’ll be your host.
My intentions for this blog are as follows:
- To educate myself and others about what’s happening in developing countries
- To hold accountable governments and other actors to the Millennium Development Goals
- To inspire courage, collaboration, and dedication towards the problems of developing countries by focusing on the solutions and showcasing stories of success
…I think I’ll let all that sink in for a bit. This blog is definitely in its infancy–a few days ago, it was just an idea–and likely will be for a while. I have a lot of great ideas for things I’d like to see here, but it will take a lot of time and effort to implement them all.
My short term goal is – invest myself in this blog a little bit every day, and make it something I can be proud of.
Coming up next: who I am and why I care.
Feel free to drop a comment and introduce yourself!
