Format: Paperback
I truly enjoyed reading this book. The book opens with a famous quotation made by the Aga Khan at the foundation stone ceremony for the Versova social housing project in Mumbai, India, in the 1980's:

"There are those who enter the world in such poverty that they are deprived of both the means and the motivation to improve their lot. Unless they can be touched with the spark which ignites the spirit of individual enterprise and determination, they will only sink into apathy, degradation and despair. It is for us, who are more fortunate, to provide that spark."

I was fortunate to be able to visit the Versova project and it is remarkable that the quotation made by the Aga Khan continues to inspire so many to this day. It is especially fortunate for the ultra poor of the world that the quote has captured the imagination of the young determined 12 year old author.

As a UNICEF Canada Child Representative, Bilaal has inspired thousands of Canadians to get involved in helping children in the developing world to have a better life. The book has a straightforward message on how to become an activist in fighting global poverty. It has many practical and really good tips. He encourages you to think big, visualize success, and realize that goals can be achieved. Also, success builds confidence and further success!

I highly recommend the book, especially for parents with pre-teen and teenage children.
