"What is the importance of a little group of people living in the desert in a corner of a southern African country? Unless we are able to recognise the potential value of such cultures, and to include specific protection for them and their rights as funding priorities, we will be allowing some of the world's richest and most resourceful - but also most vulnerable - cultures and languages to slip through the cracks."

Jennifer Hays in "Owners of Learning: The Nyae Nyae Village Schools over Twenty Five Years" (2016)
