Join fellow members for our second installation of the Net Impact Boston book club! We are excited to announce that the August book is “How to Change the World, Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas” by David Bornstein.
The book profiles nine champions of social change who developed innovative ways to address needs they saw around them in places as distinct as Bombay, India; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and inner-city Washington, D.C. To demonstrate the commonality among experiences as diverse as a Hungarian mother striving to provide a fuller life for her handicapped son and a South African nurse starting a home-care system for AIDS patients, the book presents useful unifying summaries of “four practices of innovative organizations” and “six qualities of successful social entrepreneurs.” For synopsis and reviews of the book, go to: http://tinyurl.com/6pno3p
