At times, the whole charitable concept of foreign aid can create dependencies and corruption that do more to hinder than to help our far-flung cousins. In Seeds of Hope, set on an Indonesian isle, our two well-meaning protagonists wonder what they have gotten themselves into. They quickly realize that if they do not distance themselves from the local aid organizations, their projects-planting medicinal herb gardens and creating jobs through eco-tourism-will come to nothing. After months of language studies and fruitless meetings, they find the village of Lekolodo. There, they embark on a journey with the inhabitants that will profoundly change them all and ultimately become a model of autonomy cited by the Indonesian government. Seeds of Hope is a touching example of tenacity in the face of petty-minded opposition.
