Sustainable Impact - How Women Are Key to Ending Poverty
Women are BIG.
Our book gives a glimpse.
Laina Raveendran Greene, Audrey Tan, and Lizzy Hawkins have spent their lives searching for ways to address inequalities and enable people to lift themselves out of poverty. The authors highlight issues that women at the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid face through narrative storytelling. The solution to these issues is tackling the feminisation of poverty. That entails empowering the people most affected by poverty, women.
Revolutionary transformation requires revitalized giving. Business models reliant on donations limit the potential of women and their ideas. In Sustainable Impact, Greene, Tan and Hakins argue for social enterprise as an alternative to charity and microfinance in tackling poverty.
Sustainable Impact invites readers to engage in patient capital, where people are prioritized over profits. The pages are filled with conviction that together, we can tackle poverty and build a more equitable world in which women have equal opportunities to lift their communities from poverty and build positive futures.
