24 LESSONS LEARNT – cont. The wounds of any community can be healed through Community Dialogues (Strength through unity) Culture can be challenged to work for communities in the fight against wrong. Communities are capable of bringing change Poverty is never an excuse. Moral rejuvenation is possible.
