Green Chameleon » AWARE of Poor KM

Green Chameleon

A 25-year-old NGO, the Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE), was recently taken over by a group of people with connections to a christian fundamentalist church.

Without a doubt, those are more valuable knowledge classes than documents, as they are alive and take time to build.
