A Path Appears free pdf An essential, galvanizing narrative about making a difference here and abroad--a road map to becoming the most effective global citizens we can be. In their number one "New York Times "best seller "Half the Sky, "husband-and-wife team Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn brought to light struggles faced by women and girls around the globe, and showcased individuals and institu-tions working to address oppression and expand opportunity. "A Path Appears "is even more ambi-tious in scale: nothing less than a sweeping tap-estry of people who are making the world a better place and a guide to the ways that we can do the same--whether with a donation of $5 or $5 mil-lion, with our time, by capitalizing on our skills as individuals, or by using the resources of our businesses. With scrupulous research and on-the-ground reporting, the authors assay the art and science of giving, identify successful local and global initia-tives, and share astonishing stories from the front lines of social progress. We see the compelling, in-spiring truth of how real people have changed the world, upending the idea that one person can't make a difference. We meet people like Dr. Gary Slutkin, who devel-oped his landmark Cure Violence program to combat inner-city conflicts in the United States by applying principles of epidemiology- Lester Strong, who left a career as a high-powered television anchor to run an organization bringing in older Americans to tu-tor students in public schools across the country- MIT development economist Esther Duflo, whose pioneering studies of aid effectiveness have revealed new truths about, among other things, the power of hope- and Jessica Posner and Kennedy Odede, who are transforming Kenya's most notorious slum by ex-panding educational opportunities for girls. "A Path Appears "offers practical, results-driven advice on how best each of us can give and reveals the lasting benefits we gain in return. Kristof and WuDunn know better than most how many urgent challenges communities around the world face to-day. Here they offer a timely beacon of hope for our collective future.
