I agree with "Zone Ziwoh" below. Having served as a former Peace Corps health volunteer (in MALAWI no less!) I couldn't agree with this video more. No one understood how I gained weight in Africa. There was a cognitive dissonance that they had food, just not the right "nutritional variety" if you will. It was essentially all carbs. Two take-aways: 1) First Listen & 2) We're partners - not people who know more than others. SO true. The animated "xtranmoral" video re: wanting to be an aid worker was on point and has actually made the rounds among fellow RPCVs and I. What a great video.

Poverty isn't getting worse. Food isn't running out. Volunteering overseas is not the best way to help. Simon Moss debunks six myths about poverty and asks a series of new questions to reshape the way we think about relief.

 

Simon is a campaigning and community education expert, and the COO of the Global Poverty Project. He has contributed on development issues at some of the world's leading conferences including the G20, the World Economic Forum and the Clinton Global Initiative. He is the co-founder of the Global Poverty Project, an education and campaigning organisation working towards the end of extreme poverty, and wrote the ground-breaking 1.4 Billion Reasons presentation, which has been delivered 750 times to 100,000 people since 2009.

 

Read the Gates' Foundation's Annual Letter to find on out more about the myths and the systems that keep people poor.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
