Description:

If you read the headlines, you are sure to know all the bad news. What you hear much less about are the acts of courage, undertaken by those who are changing our world, one man, woman, and child at a time. The Tactics of Hope affirms how these social entrepreneurs are leading a revolution that can bring about positive global change. Wilford Welch's moving account demonstrates how we can "create opportunities, not hand-outs," following the lead of NGO's such as Google.org, Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus-who began by giving a microloan to a single woman in Bangladesh-and Rosalind Jones Larkins, raised in the projects in New Orleans, who decided to help destitute women displaced by Hurricane Katrina find work and shelter.

Desmond Tutu was born October 7, 1931 in Klerksdorp, Transvaal, South Africa. He attended Johannesburg Bantu High School. After leaving school he trained first as a teacher at Pretoria Bantu Normal College and graduated in 1954 from the University of South Africa. After three years as a high school teacher he began to study theology, and was ordained as a priest in 1960. From 1962 to 1966 Tutu devoted his time to further theological study in England at King's College, eventually earning a Master's of Theology. From 1967 to 1972 he taught theology in South Africa before returning to England for three years as the assistant director of a theological institute in London. In 1975 he was appointed Dean of St. Mary's Cathedral in Johannesburg, the first black to hold that position. From 1976 to 1978 he was Bishop of Lesotho, and in 1978 became the first black General Secretary of the South African Council of Churches. Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize on October 15, 1984 for his role in the opposition to apartheid in South Africa. He was then elected Archbishop of Cape Town in April of 1986, the highest position in the South African Anglican Church. Tutu is also an honorary doctor of a number of universities in the USA, Britain and Germany.
