The Wedding Goes on Without Us

Regular price $12.00 $0.00

Whether you hope to eliminate poverty, or merely decrease it, most "anti-poverty" efforts have one major problem in common: focusing on poverty focuses on what people don't have. It is not bad to address their poverty, but it gives an incomplete view of the poor because it does not tell us what they do have. The author's experiences in "poverty medicine" have taught him this, and he has written his story to suggest another perspective for anti-poverty efforts. Written as two stories, this book supplements conventional approaches to poverty by acknowledging, in tribute, the wisdom of Africa.
