I just attended a conference with about 250 development practitioners coming from various sectors. They shared some good work of what they are doing to improve people's livelihoods. There were so many successes. However, I had one big question, if all these people were doing such great work, how come poverty is still persistent? What would it take to see real change, a thriving economy and a reduction in unemployment rates. Is the work all just a drop in the ocean? If so, how many drops would it take to make a difference? Just food for thought.
