Our work took us here
in June and July.
Two of the incredible Partners Asia Team.
HUGE GRATITUDE TO YOU ALL!
Thinking that we’ve just been lounging by the pool lately? Hmmm, maybe next year..or the year after…or maybe in the year 2045??
We spent June-July in Thailand and close to the Thai-Burma border launching an incredible new partnership project with Partners Asia.
Our yearlong journey with this great organization, based in CA and working in Southeast Asia for decades, kicked off with eA creating and leading a very unique workshop: “Redesigning Monitoring & Evaluation for Community-Driven Solutions.”
While that may sound a bit “jargony,” it was far from! The theme = Building Bridges (hence the photo of bridges built by participants).
This partnership is all about adapting tools WITH, not FOR,
local, community-based entities to better demonstrate
their critical work with very vulnerable communities.
Building bridges in teams,
without being able to see the other half of the bridge under construction.
Talk about trust and teamwork!
Participants sharing knowledge
with powerful examples!
Working hard to map out impact.
And, wow, talk about critical work!

Zen and the Art of Being a RadHuman
Our logo. Did you know? Did you know that our logo was designed specifically for TRH by Artbillrohs? “Ensō (circle) is a sacred symbol in the Zen school of Buddhism and is one of the most common subjects of Japanese calligraphy, even though it is a symbol and not a character. You may hear it called the Circle of Enlightenment, the Infinity Circle and even the Lost Symbol of Reiki.”
So why use it for The Radical Humanitarian®? Read on…

Thank you to Aimee Voth Siebert, M.A., Community Health and Safety Inclusion Coordinator and Disaster Behavioral Health Specialist at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response!
We very much enjoyed participating in the CO Community Inclusion Workgroup and look forward to more.
YES! We’re an Endorser of The Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action!
