Book giveaway: The Last Hunger Season
Today I’m giving away two copies of an intriguing book called The Last Hunger Season: A Year in an African Farm Community on the Brink of Change. This book tells the story of a group of Kenyan women who are trying to improve their lives by working with an aid organization called One Acre Fund. I read the book in two days and was fascinated by the look into the lives of these four farmers.
Though I don’t agree with all its politics, overall this is exactly my kind of book. As an advocate for orphans, I believe that there is not ONE single solution for the orphan crisis in Africa, but I believe that a variety of ideas could be partial solutions. International adoption only helps a few children. Good healthcare would help more families stay intact. In-country adoption programs like Bring Love In have exciting potential. But an adequate food supply is absolutely a crucial part of keeping more mommas alive so that they can raise their own kids.
If you’d like to win one of the two copies of this book that I’m giving away, comment below and tell me why this books sounds interesting to you. For a second entry, go like One Acre Fund on facebook, then come back and tell me that you’ve done so. I’ll pick two winners of this giveaway early next week.
