Boston Network for International Development
BNID was founded in 2004 as a joint initiative of Boston University and World Education, Inc. with the purpose of serving as a resource and point of connection for the Boston area international development community. Few metropolitan regions are as favorably placed to address the challenges of global poverty as the Boston area, with its wealth of institutions focused on various facets of international development. Through connecting with each other locally, individuals and organizations of all types – profit and nonprofit, academic and nonacademic, informational and activist – can have a greater impact globally.We strive to connect the community of Greater Boston to the challenges of international development by creating opportunities for dialog and action. Specifically, we aim to:
- Increase student engagement and preparation for action in international development issues.
- Facilitate the sharing of ideas among international development professionals and academics with the aim of enhancing development interventions.
- Serve as a catalyst for Boston residents to take direct action in international development issues.
By connecting the community of Greater Boston to the challenges of international development we hope to serve catalyst for Boston students and professionals to take direct action.
