Hi. I am an extremely shy Zimbabwean (in Southern Africa) female and I am still new to permaculture. I believe my purpose is to make a magnified input in poverty alleviation and I am trying this through application of mostly permaculture principles, coupled with harnessing the potential that is in each individual (regardless of social class or background).
I am currently trying to introduce a sustainable lifestyle (based on permaculture) to my community because I know it will definitely solve half of the challenges, at minimum costs and probably in a space of time shorter than can be imagined ( I might be wrong but it is a strong gut filling). I see the world differently especially on the definition of success and the value of money. I think because we live in a capital based world, money makes it convenient sometimes, but I think the value we have given it is far much greater than its actual value.  It would be a great thing if there are people who have managed to become, or are on the road to being self-sufficient and are willing to share their experiences, for it can be overwhelming when building something as an individual. Finding a partner along the way who has permaculture values and has love as a core value, will be a bonus and will be more than welcome.
