Continuing our intermittent Stories of Hope series, Alphonso and John sat down with Brandon Weber from Hope Africa Collective to talk about their work in youth development and community transformation.

Listen in as they discuss the holistic, multidimensional nature of poverty; the role which our history and our context play in the narratives we believe about ourselves and each other, and how these narratives continue to entrench and perpetuate poverty. The effects of perpetual stress disorder on the self-perception of value among young people. The role of the church in extending the rule and the reign of God to restore all that has been distorted in society. What would it mean to create a pipeline of value with churches and NGOs working together to serve the marginalised and change the structures of inequality in our country?
