, creates Project Aid, a proje ct management template to ease philanthropic giving in third world nations in ne ed. Bend, OR, June 06, 2013 -- ProjectAid, is being introduced as a philanthropic ai d program and project management platform. ProjectAid is a formalized set of met hodologies and tools to provide philanthropic aid to foreign micro-economies, ma king it easier to provide direct aid to regions in need. Fifteen Management Cons ulting Group founder, Japhet Berlin seeks to provide interoperable solutions to foreign aid programs, and announced the launch of his ProjectAid program at Fift een Development Group, a high end business think tank, startup incubation, busin ess development and program management, and recruiting firm focused on technolog y projects for Global 2000 firms. ProjectAid is the vision of Fifteen Development Group founder, Japhet Berlin. Be rlin started ProjectAid after managing his own philanthropic efforts to provide aid in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and areas of Africa and Asia. His first project was delivering school supplies, soccer balls, medical aid item s and athletic shoes to a village in the Dominican Republic. “The logistics of get ting national and local permission to produce the project, ship donated goods an d aid, and distribute them to the children of the Dominican Republic turned out to be extremely challenging,” said Berlin. “I know other entrepreneurs who want to g ive back to regions in need, and realized that my experience could be built into a program management methodology consisting of essential tools for these types of philanthropic ventures.“ Berlin developed ProjectAid as a set of project tools to aid in the advancement of continued Philanthropic actions that can assist those entrepreneurs who are n ot familiar with aid activities to other countries. “Giving-back shouldn’t be diffic ult,” said Berlin. “When we give to larger organizations, we don’t know where our mone y goes. By digging into the details, we can ensure we maximize the benefit of ou r resources, leverage the good will of complimentary companies, while directly c onnecting with the people in need.” For one African aid project, Berlin points out the generosity of major logistics companies and footwear suppliers, but also the difficulty in bringing the two t ogether to bring aid to kids in need. “Getting a ‘Yes,’ from a footwear supplier to be involved with a project, didn’t translate into getting them to work with the ship per who was willing to deliver the aid products,” said Berlin. “Passionate communica tion of needs was taking the bulk of my time. In the end, more tactical solution s were needed to complete projects. I realized the problem that needed to be sol ved was to convert generosity to a series of actionable steps in a project plan.” That is where the project started for Berlin. While ProjectAid is an ongoing pro gram, it will incorporate more data and knowledge as time goes on.
