Product Description

The world has changed rapidly over the past decades. These changes have made eradicating global poverty more challenging than ever. In a comprehensive guidebook, Laina Raveendran, Greene, Audrey Tan and Lizzy Hawkins-three passionate female social entrepreneurs-share their thoughts on the feminisation of poverty where women end up as victims and show that when enabled, women can take on the powerful role of change agents. They challenge us to move beyond the unconscious bias of seeing women as capable of receiving only microfinance loans to viewing women as capable of receiving larger funding, and present data that shows women are good investments. The authors lead us on a journey of hope where they encourage us to solve problems empathetically; embrace grassroots human-centric solutions; initiate systemic change; support a world of purpose-driven businesses, and help build a new paradigm of capitalism where people and purpose are more important than a sole focus on profit. Incorporated in the book is a careful examination of the old models of charity and donations juxtaposed against the promise that purpose-driven social enterprises hold in eradicating poverty. Sustainable Impact: How Women Are Key to Ending Poverty offers eye-opening insight and practical advice that seeks to motivate everyone to help make a better world and do our part to eliminate global poverty.
