David Humphries of Global Communities on the Importance of Community-based Education
Through the Noise #128
David Humphries // Vice President, Communications and Public Affairs // Global Communities
We were lucky to get David Humphries in the studio today – he’s not traveling to all corners of the earth facilitating community-based education and development right now. We had a great conversation that goes from Kenya to Colombia to Liberia and connects the dots between vastly different communities to find a common thread of success. We’ve heard this from previous guests on Through the Noise: development specialists widely recognize the crucial need to involve the local community in education and health-transformation efforts. Even if your organization has a wildly different focus, there’s still much to learn that can be widely applied across all fields. Don’t miss this conversation or David’s melodic Scottish accent today on Through the Noise.
