Really moved by this talk given by Jessica Jackley. Honest and insightful, it’s something I often find frustrating, the giving and teaching how to beg. I remember being in Mozambique a couple of years ago, the celebrations one evening were all around the millions of $$$ of debt that had been wiped out that day. Forgotten, lets start again! Teaching people that it will disappear only makes it keep happening. Helping people feel like they are doing it themselves, encouraging self respect, I think that makes for a more balanced world, one where believing in each other and backing it up with actions, can make a difference.
