Zambian Resourcefulness

Being without power or not having a kitchen would never stop a Zambian from providing a meal or tea for a group, even if it is a large group. The venue where we were meeting did not have kitchen facilities but that was not a deterrent to the women serving the needs of the conference attendees. They went out behind the building and built a fire and cooked lunch. Every morning they had tea and rolls for the group. The absence of a dining hall meant that the men and women found places outside to gather in groups to eat and talk.
