Poverty is not about money

It is all about love and determination (Nashif Ahmed, Uganda)

Sustainocracy, the new democracy

It is about the lack of possibilities to be self sufficient in the fullfilment of one basic needs.

Today we talked with Nashif Ahmed in Uganda who has a few acres for food production and serves with it the lives of 15 children and a few elderly women. The only time he needs money is when he has to interact with the external world for certain means that cannot be obtained directly from nature. Think of a waterpump, or material to repair the roof, or a motorcycle to travel to school 14 km away.

Nashif is part of the growing FRE2SH network for regional food self sufficiency and resilience. We recorded his remarks and description of his activities for our FRE2SH online learning program through our #FDN partnership.
