Having good intentions when working in relief and development is required, but is not enough on its own. The needs of the target community should be taken into account, as well as, the quality of the company’s involvement for the project to achieve success. Quality, however, is a broad term. Standards for quality assessment need to be laid out in order for companies to surpass their competitors.
