Waska is from a different kind of community organization. While most NPOs are funded through grants and charity funding, Waska sells services to the non-needy in order to help the needy. Everyone is a winner in this story.
Waska has a colossal mission: render individuals and NPOs autonomous. It simply means that they will stop depending from public funding and charity in order to survive. It also means that they gain empowerment. They become active members of the community, providing to it, powering it. That mentality of monetary dependancy cannot be in this economic turmoil. As a worker and a tax payer, I cannot afford to feed my kids and be chained to the survival of my community’s NPOs. If an NPO does not survive on its own, maybe it’s time to think about its purpose (and justification) in the community.
Waska is an autonomous organization and will proceed to reform its network of collaborators in Quebec City. The NPO has implemented a virtual network in accordance to the “Web 2.0” specifications in order to keep up-to-date with today’s fashion to surf the net. The blog you are now reading is linked to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and various other applications that help broadcasting the association’s good deeds. This re-organization is tagged “Great Waska08 Reform” and – hopefully – will help the NPO in its quest to be known by many more collaborators in Quebec City and abroad.
