At Long Last…

Hello and thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Chris Bourean, a 21 year old senior majoring in Biology & Finance at Wofford and an inaugural Presidential Global Studies Scholar for the upcoming year. My project for Presidential Scholar hopes to examine the differences in public health infrastructure in developing countries with a comparison of the effects of public vs. private contributions in improving overall health for citizens. In short, given the current delicate nature of economies the world over, I’m hoping to discover how NGOs are working more efficiently and effectively to maximize their change with such minimal budgets. While this task is certainly formidable, with enough patience and persistence, I’m sure I will get some answers.

 

My project has already taken me to India and I’m currently in Cape Town, South Africa. In time, I will catch up everyone on my travels through the Indian subcontinent but rest assured the data coming out of my interviews has certainly been enlightening and this trip has been an eye-opening experience so far and it’s only just beginning…
