Firsthand human stories of hope, resilience, determination, and family: a call to see the world's children as our own, by the President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Caryl M. Stern. The book reflects her--and UNICEF's--mission to reduce the number of preventable deaths of children under the age of five from 19,000 each day to zero. Stern draws on her travels around the world, offering memorable stories that present powerful and sometimes counterintuitive lessons about life. Each of the stories focuses on a particular locale--Bangladesh, Mozambique, earthquake-ravaged Haiti, the Brazilian Amazon--and weaves together material on the country and its history, an account of the humanitarian crises at issue, and depictions of the people she meets on the ground. Throughout, Stern traces her emerging global consciousness, and describes how these stories can positively impact our own children.--From publisher description.
