Over the past 50 years, the West has sent some $2.3 trillion in aid to Africa, the poorest of the world's continents. Good Fortune is a provocative exploration of how massive international efforts to alleviate poverty in Africa may be undermining the very communities they aim to benefit. The stories told in Good Fortune are great starting points for your discussions about the effectiveness of international development. Help spread the word about the film in the following ways.
