Africa Rising – Witness – Al Jazeera English

Africa Rising – Witness – Al Jazeera English.

“Misguided Western governments and aid agencies thought they knew the answer – billions upon billions of dollars, euros and yen committed with virtually no long-lasting results and much of the money ending up in the wage packets of foreign aid workers, in bank accounts far from Africa”

Aid and IMF policies is what destroyed African communities and this is the way to solve our problems, through developmental projects. Africans in diaspora must take the leading role in projects to take Africa out of the situation it is in. This is an important video highlighting that aspect, and I know first hand how a small NGO with the right people and intentions can accomplish far more than large NGO with millions of dollars in resources.
