Hey Dave - a presentor at last year's PUSH conference went into great detail about the challenges in Africa. As a coincidence, there was also the Founder of Grameenphone at the conference. http://www.pushthefuture.org/archive/2005/speakers2005.asp

Whatever we have been doing in Africa (IMHO huge feeling of guilt by us white folks) seems to only makes things worse. They, like all of us, want to pick ourselves up by the bootstraps and say "we did it". I like what Grameenphone did and what Unitus is trying to do...helping others but ultimately "they own it".

Seeing this sure makes me think that we have some work to do at Unitus. We have a powerful and emotional message, but we haven't packaged it yet to have the punch and the viral power of Invisible Children. Don't you think?
