This Women for Women thing is getting out of hand. I am SO excited by it. So naturally, I picked up A Thousand Sisters, by Lisa Shannon, who has become a real moving force in the world of Making Life Better for Women in the Congo. Turns out, she's formed a whole organization with all kinds of ways to get involved.
I just started reading her book, and all I know is, I want to be more involved. And to drag my friends (and students) along with me!
There are so many ways to get involved and make a difference in the lives of people who have been largely ignored by the world. The problems seem huge and insurmountable, but people like Lisa are showing that ordinary folks like you and me CAN make an impact.
