The Sceptics' Journey


45 min.

File No





With the widening scope of government cutbacks, the value of overseas work in developing countries is being questioned. Mega-project fiascos have led many in the west to believe international development is a waste of money. Four Canadians were chosen as "sceptics" to examine how their tax dollar is spent on international development projects. They witness firsthand the work done by voluntary agencies to work with children in Bombay, female victims of domestic violence in Madras, agricultural projects in Gujarat, and literacy projects in Nepal.
