The Boston Network for International Development (BNID) was founded in 2004 as a joint initiative of Boston University and World Education, Inc. with the purpose of serving as a resource and point of connection for the Boston area international development community. Few metropolitan regions are as favorably placed to address the challenges of global poverty as the Boston area, with its wealth of institutions focused on various facets of international development. Through connecting with each other locally, individuals and organizations of all types – profit and nonprofit, academic and nonacademic, informational and activist – can have a greater impact globally.
