Development: Getting to the Root Causes

I joined the APU lectures on Community Development this week. Even though it was the second time hearing them, they were still very inspiring. We were given permission to take some videos to use in preparing teams to come out and serve with iThemba. Here is the famous “Drowning Babies” story that I wrote about last year. Dr. Francis Njoroge is an amazing story-teller, and has years of experience doing development with World Vision and TEAR fund. It is such a privilege to hear him share. Here is a quote that was also shared at the lectures:

“May those of us involved in the peaceful struggle for human promotion bear this in mind always:

 it is good that our hands help the flight of the poor,

but may we never dare to take the place of their wings”
