A great reminder from the No Small Change blog: Stop documenting. Start communicating:
The woman who sends you Rs 2,500 a year does not want to see the pipe you've installed from four different angles. She wants to see the happy face of child who now has water.
That's an important distinction that's lost on many nonprofits. It's important in the way you report back, and it's even more important in the way you ask for funds.
You won't get as many donors if you focus on the pipe. You'll get a lot more if you focus on the people the pipe well help. Better yet if you focus on a person the pipe will help.
