Books! Tuition! These two simple words from a group of desperately poor orphans in Zambia set an American couple on a journey to build schools and provide educational resources to forgotten communities around the world. This journey takes an adventurous, daunting, inspiring, and often humorous route from a campfire in the "wrong" village in Zambia to Rwanda, Cambodia, Papua New Guinea, South Africa, Nepal, Ethiopia, Malawi, India, Kenya, Guatemala, and Peru and introduces this couple to Ms. Jean, Beata, Irene, Reachana, Phomotso, Dolly, Grant, OG, Debbie Poppins and so many other world changers along the way.
The journey also gives these two university professors more education than their combined six college degrees ever could, gives them an adopted son, and gives them more inspiration than they could ever imagine. Monumental challenges, humbling failures, perspective-shifting experiences, and life-changing successes are shared through the lives and stories of amazing individuals from some of the remotest places on earth. The reader will be amazed, entertained, shocked--and most importantly educated and inspired to see how the opportunity for education, the power of human interaction, and the reach of the ripple effect can change the world one student, one school, and one community at a time.
