Stories from the Field

If you are interested in really seeing the difference being made by UN agencies and NGO's, I highly recommend NEED Magazine. NEED is a new online magazine that is "not out to save the world, but to tell the stories of those who are." While they may be humble in describing their work, being able to help effectively tell what is going on "in the field" is an important need in the development community. The stories are beautifully written and the photography is stunning.

They just posted their second issue, which features stories on UNHCR and the MTV/UNDP Water for Life campaign with rapper Jay-Z.
