I lived with a nomadic tribe in northern Kenya for one year “Samburu” Great to see what this guy is doing, My total respect. Very unfortunate though what is happening on other levels of so called help.
Have you heard of the 5:50:500 ratio?
Each year NGOs have contributed at least $5 billion to the Developing World.
Each year Governments have contributed at least $50 billion to the Developing World.
Each year the Developing World loses an average of $500 billion as a result of the unjust international economic system.
(OECD & IMF based figures – from research by Bertrand Borg & Colm Regan)
“So in short for every $55 billion transferred to the Developing World by the Developed World, $500 billion is transferred in the opposite direction”
