Books That Impacted Me

As my heart began growing for the poor/oppressed, and injustice - there were two books in particular that stand out for me.

Social Innovation Secret - Understand

The secret most helpful for me to remember is the importance of understanding the full context of who you are trying to help - culture, resources, environment, mentality...

I learned this first hand as I was working with a orphanage in Haiti who was trying to develop sustainable food sources. After looking into a varied approach and preparing to implement agricultural programs and a tilapia farm, we quickly discovered that as people removed form their daily life we failed to…

I have this dream to create a network of sustainable back-yard gardens to 1) provide local fresh produce to food banks, and 2) recreate a sense of community amoung neighbors as they share their harvest with each other.

Make them a better stove instead.)"This simple idea has two meanings. First, it shows that the injustice of poverty and instability does not have a cookie cutter answer. Rather, it takes domestic and well educated responses that address the factors that drove a culture to suffer so, such as from…See More
