The Mutunga Partnership
Winner-Missionary Spirit Category! The Mutunga Partnership is a micro finance organisation that is committed to helping the poorest help themselves. Seven years ago, Morris Stuart felt inspired to begin an organisation that saw dignity and respect given to the poorest of the poor. He feels that faith requires action. I was privileged enough to join him on his latest trip to Kenya to meet some clients and hear their stories. This film reflects but a fraction of my experience yet does speak of how moved I was to see, at the grass roots level, the impact of one human being, obedience, faith and imagination!
