The award winning documentary, Good Fortune, takes a critical look at aid work, particularly in Africa, and raises the questions anyone working in aid and development should be asking themselves. Essential viewing:
GOOD FORTUNE explores how massive, international efforts to alleviate poverty in Africa may be undermining the very communities they aim to benefit. Through intimate portraits of two Kenyans battling to save their homes from large-scale development organizations, the film presents a unique opportunity to experience foreign aid through the eyes of the people it is intended to benefit.

This is where I cut, paste and sometimes create. Thanks for visiting.
