What We Do
The Way Forward
In a HARDtalk interview on July 21st, Stephen Sackur talks to Dr Michael Meegan of ICROSS in Kenya's Rift Valley.
The recent G8 Summit at Gleneagles ended with an agreement to boost aid for developing countries by $50 billion. The debt of some of Africa's poorest countries is also being cancelled. Michael Meegan runs ICROSS, a small charity trying to help some of Africa's poorest. He doesn't think debt relief and more aid are the answer to the complex issue of lifting people out of poverty. He talks to Stephen Sackur near one of his clinics in the Rift Valley - the home of the Masaai people.
