At Tatua Kenya we see "poverty"as the powerless posture that someone else needs to ‘solve our problem.' Poverty is more than a lack of resources; it is a belief that you are in fact, inferior to the people who hold those resources. It is a belief that you do not have the power to create your own solutions. Communities and segments of people who have been oppressed and marginalized over time can easily give up on their will to seek justice. So how might we unlock the real power of affected communities to lead with solutions slowly but surely with their own resources?
Over the years, we have also learnt that change is not enough with communities only working together. Real change must be integrated into larger systems of society to be sustained in the long run. There's plenty of evidence around the world to show that communities can protect the changes they seek for through new policies and legislation to ensure that generations to come are thriving in New discoveries. So this is really about turning the wheels from works of charity to work of Justice. We must support communities to confront systemic injustices of Poverty!
