Foreign aid

It has been called a tax on our poor to help the rich overseas and I have seen money water on big agricultural projects in Nigeria which provided no real employment only expensive equipment which was left to rust when it broke down. By contrast a charity with minimal resources gave poor farmers loans to buy oxen and ploughs or day old chicks. This really did help real communities.
   I asked under FOIA to be told how our aid was spent in Nigeria. It is secret and will not be disclosed. Why?
