From the movie – The Imitation Game
You can take a person out of poverty but you can’t take the poverty out of them.
Just another example of how giving money to the poor may not take them out of poverty. What takes an individual out of poverty is their mindset and willingness to get out of poverty.
Below is a link to a news article about how ZANU-PF admitted to have made a big mistake by land reform. It highlights the importance of a changed mindset. Giving land to someone who will not work at it and make sure it produces its best is the same as wasting land. Some people have just adopted an attitude of receiving everything by virtue of their race and thus don’t expect to work hard for anything.
