Organizations involved in the myriad causes related to Africa were asked a seemingly simple question: "Why save Africa?" The result was an unprecendented book composed of a collection of compelling perspectives from around the world. Why Save Africa? is made up of short essays from large, internationally recognized non-profits; small grassroots charities; and everything in between. These groups have responded to the question with extraordinary vigor and compassion that will inform and inspire you. Additionally, Why Save Africa? features true stories and testimonials from individuals who explain, in their own voices, why they have been drawn to helping this land. Why Save Africa? also includes: * A comprehensive overview of Africa and its people * Profiles of organizations and individuals working to save Africa * Steps on how you can help save Africa This eye-opening book also gives back--a portion of the proceeds from Why Save Africa? will be donated to the contributing charities.
