A decade ago Tori Hogan was an intern in Kenya with the group Save Our Children. A teenager there gave her a sobering view of the effectiveness of international humanitarian aid, telling her that aid workers come and go, but nothing changes. Since then, Hogan has traveled to more than 75 countries in search of successful aid programs. The project has spawned a film series and a new book, "Beyond Good Intentions: A Journey into the Realities of International Aid."
