Twaweza Head Rakesh Rajani was invited to speak at the 2010 TEDx event in Dar es Salaam. His talk was entitled, 'Development is miserable, but people are making things happen.' After presenting observations from Tanzania on water, health and eduation he asked:
'What can we conclude? We have hollow shells, hardware over software, dysfunctional governance, veneers & pretences of progress, high costs and serious inequitie., Little care, little health, little learning. Little faith in ‘officialdom.’
And yet, people are driving change with a little imagination.
