Building Self-Reliant Communities
For decades developed nations tried to solve global hunger by sending bags of food. This charity was well-intentioned, but it debilitates communities by making them reliant on aid. Today we’ve realized that the real solution to hunger is increasing the capacity of at-risk communities to become self-reliant. That means building wells, increasing literacy, training professionals, and especially building through women, who are more focused on the long-term good of their families.
