Fifteen years ago, our Program Leader for Social Entrepreneurship, Teresa Chahine, made it her mission to figure out how she could most effectively play her part in joining the global call to action at the turn of the millennium. World leaders had issued the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a joint effort to tackle the gravest challenges facing humanity, by 2015. This year, the deadline is here.
She turned to experts and authors to help her decide on a course of action. In this article published by Maria Shriver's blog, Teresa shares several books that helped shape her approach to working towards putting an end to global poverty.
