this is not a radio station
in fact I promise to
give a prize to anyone who can guess what it stands
for. For that matter, maybe you could enlighten me on
what CREATE stands for or AMPLITUDE, or maybe PITS or
there about NGOS (there goes another one) that makes
them want to use acronyms? It seems that before an NGO
decides on a name it goes through a list of words that
they think represent their work. Gone are the days when
you knew what an NGO did simply by its name. I mean,
there was Women's centre, Lawyers collective, and even
Majlis is fine. But what does one do with "PAW
(People against War)". I have no objections to
this one- even though paw isn't exactly a word I love
isn't exactly healthy, but in the interests of peace
I'll let that pass.
organizations go to great lengths to ensure that they
get a WORD first and then fit the letters in the word
(World Order for Rural Development) to describe the
organization!. There was a case once of an organization
deciding on the word and while fitting the adjectives,
they decided to change the aims of the organization!
guys, let's get serious and not get into the UN trap
of UNIFEM and UNDP and UNMe simply because UNI think
it's easier to pronounce.
suggestion is FM2U.
