The pages of David Wesley Ofumbi’s new book, Identity and Transformation ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61996-208-8; $22.99, hardcover, 978-1-61996-209-5; $7.49, e-book, 978-1-61996-210-1) explore a foundation for a new Sub-Saharan Africa that prides itself in developing local capacities for local solutions. The book argues that permanent solutions must be culturally sensitive, locally resourced and must build a sense of ownership and accountability within the community.
“Development is who people are rather than merely what people do and what they obtain from their labor,” states the author. “Development must begin with children at their infancy. Therefore true development aims at changing an entire generation rather than merely individuals or communities and building the communal character of a community and societal responsibility.”
