Bukomo and Poverty in Zambia, Africa
"Bukomo" means Development, Empowerment in the Zambian language of the Kaonde tribe of North Western Province. The writer describes the root causes of poverty, what can be done in Zambia specifically, and in Africa in general, and how the media portray the issues of HIV/AIDS and orphans in Africa. The writer talks about growing up in rural areas and about the struggles that girl children in particular go through. She proposes ideas for what the government can do to fight poverty, to promote human rights, and to reduce the prevalence of street children in the cities of Zambia, and how it can help to encourage sustainable development to enrich the rural communities in Zambia. All proceeds from this book will go towards Buya Village Foundation a non-profit grassroot organisation working to promote literacy and skills training to combat poverty in rural Zambia.
