The Richard T. Clark Fellowship is a Merck based program which gives employees an opportunity to work for 3 months periods, directly with non-governmental organizations around the world.

In August of 2013 I applied and was accepted into the program, and will be working with the Uganda based PACE organization over the three months from October through December. Along with three Merck colleagues I'll be focused on operationalizing a 'franchise-in-a-box' business model, and creating a strategic IT plan for the organization.

Over the coming months I'll be posting my personal experience in working with an NGO, and my experience living in Kampala, Uganda.
