How to Change The World
IN THIS SUMMARY
This book documents the true and inspiring stories of the Ashoka fellows - bright, energetic, and creative individuals who are leaders in a growing citizen (non-profit) sector. These innovators for the public are instrumental in introducing change in their countries through practical solutions. Most of them started out with tiny budgets, armed only with an idea and strength of will. From Ashoka founder Bill Drayton, to Brazil's Vera Cordeiro, to South Africa's Veronica Khosa, or India's Jeroo Billimoria, the book also includes a chapter to illustrate the spirit of one of the first social entrepreneurs- Florence Nightingale. These individuals are models of human capability. They worked tirelessly in the service of others.
