Provocateurs not Philanthropists: Turning Good Intentions into Global Impact (September 2022, Changemakers Books)

You want to make a difference: to use your talents and resources in the “developing world” and create a meaningful, lasting impact. While governments, multilateral organizations, and billionaire philanthropists continue to look for the next “silver bullet”, can you be confident that you can make a difference with who you are, what you have, and what you can imagine for the communities you feel called to work with?

Unlike the philanthropists, provocateurs are everyday leaders such as entrepreneurs, teachers, farmers, engineers. They are ordinary people who make extraordinary personal and professional contributions to making the world a better place. They leave lasting legacies. 

This book distills real-life examples and insights from the experiences of provocateurs in the Global South into a framework that will ensure your impacts will be sustainable and generative. Like these effective provocateurs, you too can bring the benefits of your vision, compassion, and impact to communities by applying these solid and practical principles for success.
