Equal Shares tells a fascinating story about the history of a group of dynamic people who changed the economic life of their community. The authors examine a key community-based cooperative in Botswana that was launched in the early 1970s, and is hailed as a model of development and social change. With little formal education, virtually no job experience, still working their own agricultural lands, many as single mothers, they have maintained their business for over 25 years.
Equal Shares is written in different voices, and tells the inspiring story of the defining moments in the lives of the Oodi Weavers.
