New Development Grads at University of Auckland

I have just finished mentoring a number of graduate teams at the University of Auckland, School of Development. Develop 701 Development Practice and Research. I found the diversity of students and their enthusiasm for the process of handling some big assignments, such as putting a large NGO tender together, inspiring. It makes me wonder if you can do this much in a single term, with students, what the untapped potential is to create many social businesses and NGO's in underserved regions and communities.
