Dr. Auma Obama on Dispelling Victim Mentality and Redefining Poverty

Dr. Obama is  also a published author, having released her memoir “And Then Life Happens” in both German and English.

In 2010 Dr. Auma Obama founded the Sauti Kuu Foundation which seeks to give a voice to financially and socially disadvantaged children.

We talked about sustainable economic growth and supporting children holistically from the age of 4 to 25. We also discussed a strategy for everyday people who want to engage in philanthropy and what steps to get started. The focus of the interview, however, was victim mentality. How do we get away from it and redefine the notion poverty?
