Opinion: Sustainable change begins with listening

For 80 years, ChildFund International has worked to improve the well-being of children worldwide, evolving its approach according to children’s needs and the context they live in. Our long experience and more recent child protection initiatives tell us that it takes much more than the proverbial “village” to create safe environments for children. Here are three things we’ve learned.

1. Participant voices have great power to guide, inspire, and affirm development work.

In the early 2000s, we carried out a child poverty study that transformed how we work. Its key findings suggested that children’s experience of poverty differs from that of adults. Where an adult defines poverty as lacking key resources such as money, water, health care, and the like, a child tends to more acutely experience the social and emotional backlash of economic deprivation: The shame of being excluded and stigmatized by peers, the fear of increased vulnerability to violence, and the disappointment of broken dreams.

We responded to these voices by crafting a new approach to development, tailoring its efforts to the unique needs of children at each age. Children’s voices have shaped our work ever since.

Recently, what children have been telling us has guided us toward a new focus: The critical need to end violence against them. Understanding how violence can derail developmental gains, we realized that we would have to build a child protection emphasis into our work across all the sectors we touch: Health and nutrition, education, and livelihoods.

To end violence against children worldwide, however, meant adding our voice to those of other organizations on the global stage. In 2015, as the United Nations worked to create the Sustainable Development Goals, ChildFund and its sister organizations in the ChildFund Alliance joined other child-focused agencies such as UNICEF, World Vision, Save the Children, and SOS Children’s Villages in advocating that ending violence against children be made a priority among the new goals. SDG 16.2, on ending abuse, exploitation, trafficking, and all forms of violence against and torture of children, now calls much-needed attention to an issue that the earlier Millennium Development Goals failed to address.

Complementing talk with action multiplies the power of advocacy; with hands-on experience, policy makers can become believers.”

Now that world leaders have received the child protection message and enshrined it in a target, governments must develop and implement policies and protection systems that keep children safe. ChildFund and its 25 country offices continue to advocate with their national and local governments, often alongside children and youth, to create this new normal, a world where children can grow up free from violence.

How to leverage participant voices in development? Ask them about their needs through both quantitative and qualitative research, conversations, and group discussions. Then involve program participants meaningfully — as partners — in the response.

The qualitative piece has been especially important for ChildFund because without it we might not have become as acutely aware of the impact of violence on children’s development. Quantitative research is useful for measuring concrete indicators such as health and educational outcomes, but socioemotional, psychological aspects are more nuanced, harder to capture, and no less valuable.

2. Participation, both local and governmental, inspires ownership that then leads to scalability.

Governments generally have well-intended policies, but they often face challenges in putting resources behind those policies. NGOs, from local to international, can be valuable partners in turning a government’s good intentions into reality for the people they serve. Such partnerships reinforce and enliven change.

Worldwide, ChildFund works through local partner organizations rooted in the communities they serve. These long-term relationships are critical to our work: Who better to understand a community’s needs than its residents? And to whom are those residents more likely to listen — their neighbors running the community organization or the INGO staffers from outside?

In a recent pilot project we implemented in Honduras, our local partners were the first key to achieving buy-in among participants, from community members to national government actors and even donors. The project would eventually lead to the nationwide adoption of a methodology to reduce violence at school and at home.

Honduras’ murder rate among adolescents aged 10-19 is the second highest worldwide. Violence is a driving force behind the irregular migration of thousands of Honduran children; 44 percent of repatriated children report violence as the reason they left. And the first violence a child experiences is in the home — physical, emotional, and sexual. This violence influences how a child behaves, so by the time they get to school, they have already learned to use violence as a coping mechanism, perpetuating a generational cycle.

In 2014, in Honduras’ rural Santa Barbara department, the German Agency for International Cooperation piloted a school-based violence prevention methodology designed by the University of Oregon and Washington. The approach is called Miles de Manos, which means Thousands of Hands. ChildFund Honduras operates its sponsorship programs through local partner organizations there, so we were well-positioned to participate. The methodology aimed to teach parents and teachers new competencies to reduce and mitigate violent behavior in adults and thereby change children’s behavior.

Over 18 months in some of the country’s most dangerous areas, PUENTES applied the Miles de Manos methodology in 36 urban schools and tested it against another 36 control schools, reaching 265 teachers and 16,094 children. Honduras’ Ministry of Education served as an integral partner throughout PUENTES, working with us to choose the participant schools, staff the project, train facilitators, and observe the parent, teacher, and joint parent-teacher sessions. Results included a 56 percent reduction in violent incidents at school. Parents became more involved with school communities, and at home, they used less physical punishment while also communicating more with children and providing greater supervision. From a baseline of 70 percent, at the end of the project 90 percent of students reported that they felt safe at home and in school. It was important to hear this from the students. Perception is reality, and the perception of safety becomes a psychological protective factor, reducing stress.

How to inspire duty bearers’ participation? Invest in local relationships from the beginning of — or, ideally, before — any project. Our local partners’ presence and good work positioned us for donor attention that made the PUENTES project possible. Usually, it’s the other way around — development initiatives proceed from the top down, starting with a sophisticated proposal or high-level relationship rather than from the grassroots up. This is a story of how a strong local relationship can be a driver of change, not just a result of it.

3. Involving duty bearers promotes sustainability.

Complementing talk with action multiplies the power of advocacy; with hands-on experience, policy makers can become believers. We are certain that the education ministry’s deep involvement with PUENTES, especially its firsthand encounters with the parents and teachers who participated, was instrumental in the Honduran government’s decision to build the Miles de Manos approach into the country’s national curriculum. The approach will become part of the government’s strategy for its existing “parenting school” to teach parents competencies for creating safer home environments and supporting their children’s development. With the government enacting the methodology as policy, making it compulsory and supporting it, the work will now benefit families and schools across the country. It’s a huge advocacy win, and it happened thanks to the engagement of government stakeholders in the process.

But be aware that building these relationships can be complicated. In Honduras, there were several units of the government tasked with fighting violence, so it was challenging to decide which of them to invite to the table. We worked with the Ministry of Education’s central office, but we also had to work for buy-in from the district and state levels, as well as from every school principal to allow teachers to participate.

Although PUENTES worked with the adults around children rather than directly with children, it still delivered what children have been asking of us. For the last several years, ChildFund Alliance members have surveyed children worldwide on issues that matter to them, and in 2015, one of the questions was, “How can adults protect children better?” Many children answered, “Love children more.” We think parents and teachers have learned practical ways to do exactly that.

We know widespread change won’t happen overnight, but as parents begin seeing each other approach family life in these fresh ways, instead of with the violence that has been the norm for previous generations — and as they share their experiences and listen to each other — we feel hopeful that schools and families across Honduras will buy in to these new ways.

It’s about behavior change, and it all begins with listening. We as adults have a significant role in influencing the behavior of children — when we change, they change. When we don’t change, it’s really difficult to expect a different type of society at the end of the day.

How aid orgs are experimenting with blockchain in their HR operations

By Sara Jerving // 09 April 2018

NAIROBI — While some players in the international aid sector are capitalizing on blockchain technology to improve programming, others in the sector are also using the technology internally in their organizations, in areas such as improving efficiencies around human resource processes.

Blockchain has been praised as the next major transformative technology in development and humanitarian relief, mainly because of its potential to create efficiencies in areas such as supply chain logistics. The technology uses a decentralized network to record and authenticate transactions and is valued because of its heightened security, transparency, and ability to streamline processes.

Konektid International, a consulting firm that advises organizations that work with the United States Agency for International Development, is planning to begin offering payments to employees in cryptocurrency this month, as well as accept it as payments from clients. Blockchain technology is used in the transfer of cryptocurrencies. The firm decided to make this switch in order to avoid expensive wire transfer fees and prevent delays in transfers of payments.

“It’s just a better payment system,” said Mike Shanley, founder and chief executive officer of Konektid. “We want to offer another option for our teams around the world to make the process of delivering development impact more efficient.”



What small business is most profitable today?

By Yannick Veys, Growth hacker | Startup founder | Loves online marketing

Answered Apr 3

An online business! 🙂

I’ve been building websites for a long time now and I’ll give you some insight in how I did it and why I think starting an online business is a great way of making a lot of money with minimal investment. To earn 128k I spent less than 10k.

My first month I earned 1 Dollar and 58 cents. That’s it. Now… I could’ve thought: this is not for me. I don’t know anything about online. I’m never gonna earn more than a few bucks a month. But the month after that I made 12 bucks. So almost 10x what I earned in my first month. More than 50 bucks in my 3rd month and that went up all the way to more than 6000 dollars (more than 5000 Euro’s) a month. I was making a pretty decent living and I wasn’t spending more than 10 hours per week on this.

Along the way I had a lot of revenue drops as well. I went from 500 to 300, from 1000 to 800. And every time that happened I could’ve thought: this ain’t for me. Find something else you want to do. But I kept going. And I’ve made a lot of money sticking with it. You should too. Whatever business you choose, stick with it! You’ll have some shit times ahead. You’ll think of quitting. Don’t! Keep going. You will succeed!

Why online?

Because it literally costs next to nothing to start a business online. If you pay $50 dollars a year on hosting + domain name it’s a lot. But potential earnings are big. So: low cost.

Don’t think you gotta be a programmer with a Stanford Engineering degree to create websites. It’s not hard. I know a bit of HTML (the basic markup language of a website) but I definitely don’t know how to code (make functionalities beyond a contact form for example).

There’s so much opportunity. There are dozens of angles you can choose from to start an online business. And there are a dozen ways of monetizing your website. And last but not least: there are countless topics you could use to start your online business with.

To give you an example: I have a couple of websites which are pure text based. They are the most basic form of websites. Not a single image, just plain text. And I’ve made thousands of dollars with them. If I would calculate my hourly earnings I would end up in excess of 1000 bucks an hour. I only spent a few hours setting it up and I’ve made thousands of dollars with them. You can too!

But how do I start?

Ok, so sounds good? But I hear you thinking: How the H*ll am I going to start an online business. First things first.

Pick your topic

It can be anything. Literally anything. The best thing you can choose is something you really enjoy doing or a topic you have a lot of knowledge in.

I’m a techy and someone who knows a bit about finance and law so those are the niches I choose. If you live in the US, or UK (any country that has a lot inhabitants who speak the same language) you can go for a really small niche.

For example: Dogs -> Small dogs -> Chihuahua’s -> Long coat Chihuahua’s

If you use Google’s Keyword Research & Strategy Keyword Planner you’ll see that 1000 people a month search for “Long coat Chihuahua”. That’s big enough to start a website for.

(The Keyword Planner by the way is my #1 tool to scout for new projects. It gives you the the search volume per keyword and gives you ideas of search terms related to the one you filled in. So with the Chihuahua you would also get kennels, food, puppies for sale, etc. And it will show you ad competition. That’s usually a good comparison for organic competition as well.)

If you’re in a smaller country go for the Chihuahua niche.

Right down about 5 – 20 topics you could go for. Start doing Google searches and see what websites are ranking in the top 50 for your topic. Look at what they’re doing. Don’t look at how the website is looking. Look at the content. Do you have more knowledge than your direct competitors? Can you do a better job? Can you give better/cooler/different angles? Do you have more in depth knowledge?

You’re @ 90% now. The only thing you still have to do is check out how much competition there is. Google “intitle:your topic” (Without the “”) and checkout how many results there are. You can find the number of results found under the search bar once you pressed enter. You should aim for anything well under 500k results. The less the better. Less results means less competition means more chance for you to rank higher. And ranking higher quicker will make you money faster.

Found some topics you can start with? Great! That’s step 1 checked.

Pick your website / monetization angle

  • You want to sell products? Start an ecommerce store. Use Shopify
    or if you are familiar with WordPress, use WooCommerce – eCommerce for WordPress

    • Want a bigger audience? Register with Amazon’s seller program. And if you don’t want to have all the hassle with sending and returns, you could use Fullfilment By Amazon. Just send your products over to Amazon and they will send it for you.
    • Don’t want to sell your own products? Review someone else’s and register for Amazon’s affiliate program.
    • If you want to monetize the content on your website, you have a few options.
    • There are a lot more ways to monetize a website, but these are the main ones and the ones I have the most experience with.

Think about your website structure

If you want to rank high in Google, you need to make sure you’re building your website with a solid foundation. Use a tool like XMind to create a mind map of your topic. Write down anything that comes to mind. Search for your topic on AnswerThePublic to see what other related questions people are asking.

Create a website structure (on paper) that is logic. Make logical categories with the biggest topics. And branch out to smaller niches within your niche. You can also look at it like it’s a tree. You have a main branch, some smaller ones and many tiny ones.

Use Google’s Keyword Planner to see where the volume’s at. Don’t choose categories / search terms that have next to nothing in volume. You need at least a couple hundred searches a mount on your sub topics. Preferably more if there isn’t too much competition.

Setup your website / webhosting

Depending on your technical skills, you could just rent a bit of webhosting somewhere and install WordPress on it. Or if you really haven’t ever done anything like it, you could just use You’ll have a blog setup in seconds. You only need to know how to type 🙂

If you have a bit more knowledge, just use WordPress. You need a bit more knowledge. Buy a domain name. Download WordPress. Setup a database on your webhosting plan. Change the wp-config.php file to match your database settings. Upload all the WordPress files to your webhosting via FTP (What is FTP?). Go to your domain and start the WordPress installation once all the files have been uploaded.

Start typing (assuming you are monetizing your content)

The most important thing any website needs is content. Easiest is just plain text. Extra cudo’s for images and video’s. The more original content you can create the better.

People want answers to their questions fast. And people also want extensive articles where all the ins and outs are explained. So put the most important content at the top. Ideally you’ll want to create in depth articles that contain more than 2000 words each. Don’t worry if you can’t create these all the time for every (sub)topic. But it would be great if you could.

Search for your (sub) topic on Google. Look at whats in the top 5 again and just do a better job. Preferably a 10x better job. More extensive. Better. Nicer looking. Video. Etc. Better can be done in 10 different ways.

Find link partners

If you want traffic to your website, you need to be found on Google. And in order to be found on Google, you need lots of links pointing to your website.

Here are some good resources about links and linkbuilding on Quora:

What are the best ways to build links for a website? (

How can I create quality backlinks? (

In short: either create great content (together with someone who also has a lot of knowledge and a website in your niche) so it’s worth for people to link to your website.

Or contact other website owners and ask them if you can create a guest blog on their website .

It’s gonna take a while

It usually takes about 6 months before you start to really see the needle moving. I have my first visitors on my website after a few weeks. But you need to just keep at it. Keep going. Create more and better content and keep reaching out to people to see if they want to link to you. If you keep getting a “nay” than your content isn’t good enough. Don’t start paying people to link to you. Just create better content because that works both ways. Your visitors will find your website more valuable. People will link to you more often because your content is more valuable to their audience.

See what sticks and continue in that direction

I started multiple websites with different topics. Not all of them where as great as others. Keep trying for at least 6 months and once you see the needle moving you can decide where you want to put more effort in. You’ll see that some websites will generate a lot more revenue than others. So after a while it becomes pretty easy to make the right choices.

Stick with it! Keep creating great content. Keep sharing your knowledge and you will build a profitable online business at minimal cost.
