Books for Better Living is partnering with Lisa Napoli, author of Radio Shangri-La: What I Discovered on My Accidental Journey to the Happiest Kingdom on Earth, to help raise awareness and funds for READ Global
April is Inspiration Month at Books for Better Living and Lisa’s work with READ Global inspired us to get involved.
READ Global believes empowering rural communities is critical to alleviating global poverty. They envision a world where individuals, families and entire communities have access to the knowledge, resources and opportunities necessary to build more prosperous futures. READ Global partners with communities in rural Asia to create vibrant places to live and thrive. Their proven and replicable model focuses on Community Library and Resource Centers as a vehicle for social and economic transformation. Combining education, enterprise and community development, READ collaborates with rural communities to build these centers and seed for-profit enterprises to ensure long-term maintenance and success.
