Description

This video explores how international efforts to alleviate poverty in Africa may be undermining the communities they aim to benefit. Through portraits of two Kenyans battling to save their homes from being destroyed by development organizations, the film presents the real-world impact of international aid through the people it is intended to benefit. The stories of human perseverance suggest that the answers for Africa lie in the resilience of its people.
