The symbol we picked for Tekva Trust is a butterfly. Now I know that it may sound girly but stay with me...The reason for picking a butterfly is because we aim to cause a butterfly effect in the poorest nations in the world that are afflicted with the consequences of HIV/ Aids. The difference between what we aim to do and the chaos theory is that we aim to bring about a positive change in the lives of these people and make a genuine impact and difference in their lives, so much so that they will be empowered to take back control of their lives and ensure their own food security sustainably.
The butterfly effect is the idea, used in chaos theory, that a very small difference in the initial state of a physical system can make a significant difference to the state at some later time [from the theory that a butterfly flapping its wings in one part of the world might ultimately cause a hurricane in another part of the world] [http://www.thefreedictionary.com/butterfly+effect]
Chaos theory is a field of study in mathematics, physics, and philosophy studying the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions. This sensitivity is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_theory#cite_note-0]
