Aid vs. Trade- Andrew Rugasira

Aid vs. Trade
Andrew Rugasira

This session was led by Andrew Rugasira, a Ugandan businessman. He challenged the world and the church to change the conversation regarding Africa. To see the value of trade over aid. Lots of discussion surrounding this session and how the church, people individually should respond to the need there and around the world.

We need to reframe our view of third world countries.
We need to see them as consumers vs. just in need of aid.
Increasing trade, self sufficiency can minimize global poverty.
