August 2017 – Namaste Features Prominently in a New Book
In How Development Projects Persist Erin Beck (Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of Oregon) examines micro finance NGOs working in Guatemala and problematizes the accepted wisdom of how NGOs function. Drawing on twenty months of ethnographic fieldwork, she shows how development models and plans become entangled in the relationships among local actors in ways that alter what they are, how they are valued, and the conditions of their persistence. Beck focuses on two NGOs (Namaste and The Fraternity) that use drastically different methods in working with poor rural women in Guatemala.
