Culture is a Basic Need

About the basic misconception of NGO projects

By Prof Dr Norbert Pintsch / IPC, FPAC, FBTC, DGFK

NGO projects are non-profit ventures, i.e. altruistic projects. The critical viewer quickly realizes whether the project is financially beneficial to the circle of contributors or a family.

If the facility is useful for a family and it finances the life of this family, which also applies to large families, so they should honestly convert it into private limited company.

The project carriers and the supporters of the project normally do not share this view, for which there are two reasons:

- the project carriers, the users and the suppliers, are simply too connected to each other to recognize this fact, and
- The supporters are too superficial, so that the of concealment is not perceived.

Another widespread problem is the inability of the participants to identify themselves as a project in the global and increasingly uniform world.

This means:

- Unknowingly, economic opportunities are transferred from A to B. These possibilities were in the past the results of colonialism, in the present it is the short-sighted spread of standards of so-called industrialized countries to the so-called developing countries.

Now it could be argued that life in a country is never one-sided, and in every country there is a gap between the upper and lower classes.

That is true, but the purpose of NGO projects is not to participate in the transfer of external values, but to preserve the peculiarities of the local values.

If this purpose is not shared by the project carriers, who operate under the cloak of selflessness, then the transformation into a serious private limited company should be undertaken and the principles of profit maximization followed.

The voluntary work, which was part of the long-term project work in various countries, was therefore discontinued and commercial consultation on usual rules for international business were offered.

Even if the above argument may seem antisocial to the reader, the rule remains: one and one is two, - not more, but also not less!

A wrong must be named as wrong!
