Book Review: 'Give Work' by Leila Janah
"There is no bigger, more world changing cause than eradicating poverty." ~ Leila Janah
Leila Janah is a woman who makes good things happen and that is an understatement. In her new book you will be excited to learn about how she and other entrepreneurs are changing the world for the better. If you have ever wondered if there is hope to end world poverty, you will be happy to read about ways that are helping people right now. Impact sourcing is a way that technology can help solve global problems. Digital work is the wave of the immediate future and in this book Leila Janah explains how helping people in poverty is a moral imperative.
To be honest this book was riveting, heart-warming, compelling, enlightening and profoundly meaningful. I live to find books that help to change the world and I'd put this in the top 10 of books I've read on that subject.
Leila Janah also effortlessly weaves the story of her journey with her awareness of what it takes to heal the world. Imagine a world where no one goes to bed hungry? Can you see a world where everyone has meaningful work? Leila's explanations of refugee camps brings her point home even more. People want to work when they have opportunity.
If you are looking for stories of success you will find much to enjoy in this book. If you want to make a difference in the world, there is a lot of inspiration. Leila Janah is a force for good in the world and her story will make you believe that there is hope for change.
