This is the story of RESULTS, a NON-partisan grassroots, citizens lobbying group
that fights hunger, poverty and death due to preventable disease
by learning how to successfully create relationships with members
of Congress and the media. They have helped the Child Survival
fund come into being and grow to $600 million, and have seen a
drop in infant mortality and increases in immunizations. They work on
global and domestic issues, and are now promoting
microenterprise lending to poor families, mostly to women. The
results of the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, and other microenterprise projects in
the U.S. and abroad have been remarkable. And these are "everyday" people...
teachers, moms, workers, students...very moving book!!!
