5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and instructive profiles of social changemakers, 9 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Rippling: How Social Entrepreneurs Spread Innovation Throughout the World (Hardcover)
From the slums of Lima to rural Kenya to the streets of New Delhi, ordinary people are accomplishing extraordinary feats and changing other people's lives forever. These social entrepreneurs and the "changemakers" they enlist are the characters in this collection of case histories by former Ashoka vice president Beverly Schwartz. Ashoka, an organization that pioneered social entrepreneurship, has a support network of more than 3,000 fellows working around the world. Schwartz, a behavioral scientist, tells the stories of 18 fellows and outlines their approaches to social entrepreneurship. getAbstract finds her profiles truly inspiring portraits of people who tackled the most pervasive, seemingly insurmountable problems in the very places where they affect the world's most vulnerable, disadvantaged and disenfranchised peoples.
