A billion people around the world live in extreme poverty. For Christians, addressing this problem is a nonnegotiable; it is an essential element of our faith. But having a heart for the poor isn't enough. In fact, sometimes, with the best of intentions, we actually do more harm than good. Unfortunately, in our filming and research, we found story after story of not-so-positive, unintended consequences of many charity and aid projects around the world. If we really care about our brothers and sisters in the developing world, we have learn from our mistakes. We must use our minds to unite our desire to help others with our knowledge of the social, economic, political, and spiritual foundations of human flourishing.

In this session, we will analyze the two major forms of international development assistance, private charity and government-to-government foreign aid, and hear what the indigienous leaders and recipients of such assistance have to say about it — the good, the bad, and the ugly.
