Here’s a quote of the week related to Fighting for What’s Right.  It comes courtesy of a friend, Mike Kinman, Executive Director of Episcopalians for Global Reconciliation:

“While we appreciate the importance of debt and disease relief in the suffering of Africa’s poorest, the key element of success in providing sustainable livelihoods for most Africans is trade.  It has been estimated that if Africa increased its share of world exports by only 1%, it would generate $70 billion. That is about five times what our continent receives in aid.”
Njongonkulu Ndungane, Anglican Primate of Southern Africa
