We all know the world isn’t a fair place. It’s always puzzled me how certain parts of the world, particularly Africa, a continent which is so rich in resources, is always portrayed as so poor.
Various reasons have been given for this narrative, from slavery, colonisation and corruption. I’m sure all these factors and more play a role in the state of Africa today, including NGOs.
When my mum showed me this TEDx Berlin video it saddened and inspired me at the same time. I realised that you have to understand the root cause of a problem in order to solve it.
Knowledge is power.
Africa is not poor, she never has been – she just hasn’t been able to own her wealth and that needs to change!
