Outside the Margins: Lessons from Walking with Communities of the World (Paperback)
Have you wondered why economic aid seems to have no impact on poverty? Why justice and equality seem to work for some and not others? In the late 1970's a young couple from the foothills of the Canadian Rockies embarked on a journey to the hills of Papua New Guinea. Little did they know that this would be a lifelong quest or that the overlooked and underserved in some of the world's poorest places would be their teachers. Sense hope in the fascinating stories of remote communities taking initiative for their own development; despair as you contemplate the plight of squatters and working poor. Woven into the stories is candid wisdom as Outside the Margins moves beyond current development data to offer solid principles for change. It may even challenge you to step outside the margins of your own world.
