Community involvement and careful management of limited resources: these are the watchwords of non-for-profit organizations, which are the bridge between various communities of our society, facilitating exchanges and interactions between them, despite working with precarious budgets. In these circumstances, applied economics interventions serve to highlight and quantify realities and socio-economic dynamics that are often well known, but whose size, growth and impact are difficult to measure.
