B.C. Without Borders ebook now available
I’m delighted to announce the publication of my new ebook, “B.C. Without Borders: 50 British Columbians Leading the Fight Against Global Poverty.”
This book began back in 2008, with a Jack Webster Foundation-sponsored fellowship to Africa to report on CIDA-assisted human development projects in Rwanda and Mozambique.
That experience sparked a passion for international development stories that led me to create and run a blog called B.C. Without Borders for The Province newspaper. The blog, which chronicled the touching stories of average citizens working abroad for social change, ran for four years from 2008 to 2012 and garnered an award nomination.
The best of those stories are now collected and updated in my new 2014 ebook, “B.C. Without Borders: 50 British Columbians Leading the Fight Against Global Poverty.” In it, you’ll read of a North Vancouver woman who has fought to change lives in Tanzania while fighting her own cancer. You’ll hear the story of a family whose son was murdered and who are planting gardens and growing crops for Zambians in his memory. And you’ll learn how a former B. C. RCMP member was so heartbroken by the crimes against children he had to investigate that he created a charity to help rehabilitate Cambodia children who have suffered sexual exploitation.
The ebook is now available on Amazon, Kobo, and iBooks for $4.99. I encourage you to have a read and be inspired by the incredible work these Canadians are doing to end global poverty and help citizens in the developing world imagine and build better futures.
