In this storycast Inemarie Dekker & Nicky Wakou introduce you to the iMPACT direct foundation who change the story of giving by making it possible to direct donate to local non-profits.
Their conversation touches on aid fatigue experienced by donors, donor recipients, the importance of building trust between donors and recipients, the inclusion of communities in the solutions seeking, and decision-making.
Inemarie is the founder of iMPACT direct. She worked 15 years in the development sector with expertise on social inclusion and gender. Presently she continues to build on her ten-year experience as a consultant for various NGOs (local, national and INGOs).
