We founded WeRobotics to counter the foreign-first, top-down, and techno-centric approach that pervades the social good sector, from aid and development to health and the environment. As others have said before us, the goal of the social good sector must be to end need, not just meet need. This means, for example, that international organizations (including small ones like WeRobotics) must have a transition plan that is “centered around devolving power, money and voice to local organizations.” Here we share our progress on the transition plan we started the same day WeRobotics was founded. This plan is evidenced by the fact that we created two different identities from day 1: WeRobotics and Flying Labs. Flying Labs are independent knowledge hubs run by local experts. Our transition plan is to shift power from WeRobotics to Flying Labs.
