Tori Hogan is the founder and director of Beyond Good Intentions, an organization that produces films and educational programs on the topic of international aid effectiveness. For more than a decade, Hogan has spent time immersed in the developing world as an aid worker, volunteer, researcher, filmmaker and aid critic. In 2006, frustrated by the lack of results she was witnessing while working with refugee populations in East Africa and the Middle East, Tori embarked on a yearlong round-the-world journey where she met with over sixty aid organizations and hundreds of recipients to produce a ten-part film series on aid effectiveness. The "Beyond Good Intentions" film series was released in 2009 and has been viewed in more than 165 countries to date, sparking a much needed dialogue about how to more positively impact the world. Since then, she has dedicated her time to training young people on this topic as the founder and director of her educational organization, Beyond Good Intentions. She also recently authored the book, "Beyond Good Intentions: A Journey Into the Realities of International Aid."
