Global Change Agents
"The time has come when the talents of the men of business shall be used
to benefit the whole people...not for individual benefit alone, nor for individual
aggrandizement alone, but for the benefit of the whole people, to uplift the
masses, to rescue them from their poverty."
--- George Q. Cannon
In recent years, my students, colleagues and I have sought to organize a new
vehicle for assisting NGOs to build capacity and become more effective institutions.
It's called Global Change Agents, Inc. We've also assembled listings of Utah-based
development and humanitarian organizations, many of which are now doing good
around the globe. Others are our friends or partners, mostly based in the U.S.,
but also working throughout the world.
Finally we included a few links having to do with global change agentry and
the building of intentional/sustainable communities.

"Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many
things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness: For the
power is in them, wherein they are agents unto themselves."

were and say, 'Why not?'"
