Special 50th Anniversary Issue
MEDA at 50
When Faith Got Down to Business
Twenty-five Years of Economic Development
by J. Winfield Fretz, 1978
The MEDA Experiment charts the first 25 years of Mennonite Economic Development Associates’ history.
For most of the post-war period, a growing group of Mennonite business people and lay professionals have applied their resources, together with interested partners, to help develop agriculture, industry, and small businesses in various communities of developing countries.
The MEDA Experiment tells of their motivation, their vision, and their various projects. Both success and failures are reported and some suggestions are made for the future of MEDA.
