A Voice Out of Poverty : The Power to Achieve through Adversity

A Voice Out of Poverty : The Power to Achieve through Adversity

Description

A woman's ascent from devastating poverty and childhood trauma to international standing as a prominent advocate for the poor and helpless.

Jillian Haslam uses her story and her voice to speak for the poor and powerless in her heart-wrenching memoir which begins in the slums of Calcutta where she and her family are forced to live after British colonization ended.

Haslam first embodied her fierce will to never give up as a young girl, when she stood for hours at a tea shop, begging for a ladle of milk to keep her newborn sister from dying of starvation.

A Voice Out of Poverty leaves the reader asking how someone so young had the tenacity to overcome so much--and then go back to face it all again in a passionate effort to spare others from the suffering that she endured and witnessed all around her growing up.

Winner of the prestigious Mother Theresa International Memorial Award, she has embraced her purpose to become an important driver of global action for the most urgent needs of the underserved in India and the UK, especially during the pandemic.
