The ECHO Network
Thousands of development workers around the world have registered with ECHO to receive ECHO Development Notes and other resources. Each contact indicates whether or not it would be appropriate for other ECHO network members to contact them. We regularly introduce people to each other who are working near each other on similar problems. Anyone working with an organization in the fight against world hunger is invited to join the ECHO network.
In recent years ECHO has built, and continues to build, strategic partnerships with organizations sharing a similar vision in their projects and programs. These partnerships allow ECHO to expand our reach and impact, while developing valuable partners with whom to share ideas, information, and struggles. With partners ECHO can serve the poor more effectively than it can alone.
