Can donor funding really fix African challenges, or should we empower African communities to address their own challenges?

Charity gives but does not really transform. For a very long time, donor assistance has been chanelled through to Africa and that really hasnt changed much. Could it be possible to birth a generation of people who are willing to be empowered with means of generating income that eventually get channeled back into communities for purposes of delivering renewal and transformation? How do we get communities to participate in the engineering of a promising future both for the continent and individual nations?

    Jan 31 2013: Interesting insights I must say. My colleauges and I are shaping a sustainable model that we believe will go a long way in aiding african nations. Its really a quantum leap but it can be attained. We would love to work with anyone who feel that they can add value to the work that we are doing. If you can help us shape this model, we would love to hear from you. Send me an email - zimbabwe@gatherinchrist.com
