5.0 su 5 stelle Extraordinary story. Extraordinary leader 16 settembre 2016
Di JOHN ONEIL - Pubblicato su

Jacquline Novogratz tells the story of a remarkable life on the front line of one one the most difficult battles we face - unlocking the immense potential of entrepreneurs to lift themselves and their communities out of poverty. I was expecting to read war stories, lesson learned the hard way, overcoming obstacles and advice for those who would follow in that path. The Blue Sweater has many of those, set in locations and circumstances that bear little resemble to Silicon Valley.

The book is so much more than that. The author delves into the soul of the problem and the people that are tackling it. With vivid descriptions that put you right in a hut in Kigali or a field in India, she explores the human side of poverty, commerce, creativity, tragedy and joy. Stories of people overcoming genocide in Rwanda to see their visions survive. These could be distractions but she weaves them into the book's central premise - that the way to fight poverty is. It simply through well intentioned even generous charity. It is through treating the poor as people, as peers and giving them the respect and tools they need to shape their own destiny to own their own dignity. To help them join markets where they have the same capacity to innovate, deliver and create prosperity for their families, communities and nations.

That is a message delivered less effectively in many books and bone dry business texts. How rare to receive it in such an inspiring and captivating life story.

This book had so much to explore. It stayed true to the title, and Jacqueline was, in my opinion, the best person to make that journey. Her eyes were open to her surroundings in a way no one else could be. Her wits also got her places no one would go, but she accepted it. I couldn't find one thing wrong with this book, other then my comprehension of it. I would read over a paragraph 5 times, trying to find the deep meaning the author wanted me to see, but my reading level was most definitely insufficient to comprehend it. I loved the book though; it pushed me to think deeper and care more. My emotions throughout changed so much it was like a roller coaster, but that might've just been hormones. Lol! But pick this book up if you have the chance. It's definitely worth it!
5.0 su 5 stelle Must read for those who love the world and its inhabitants. 5 luglio 2016

Inspirational. And that means inspiration that can be felt by people on all levels; whether they are in a similar position that Mrs. Novogratz was in, trying to bring about economic and social change to those who desperately need it; or simply the average citizen who is finding his way through life; trying to progress as a professional and an intellectual. By giving the reader a full and honest account of the trials, failures, and smashing successes she experienced, the author presents herself as a relatable figure. For those who have an avid interest in the political/social/economic landscape of African countries; and how the people of those countries struggle to create a better future for themselves and further generations, this is a must read.

5.0 su 5 stelle Why Charity doesn't work 17 luglio 2013
Di Camaja - Pubblicato su

I have learned so much from this book. I now realize that the poor are my brothers and sisters and truly helping them is not about charity. This book may challenge your conventional thinking about solutions to poverty in the world.
Although some sections of the book seemed to drag on, I did not read it as a novel, but I read it to learn fom her research and experiences so I could be more informed about what truly helps people and what does not.
The last half of the book is better than the first half because it is here she brings it all together so you can see the result of all her learning.
I love her story with all of her struggles along the way. She had to learn the importance and power of listening and to put herself in other people's shoes. She was willing to learn from her own mistakes and the mistakes of others too.
The result of all her struggles, her successes and failures is The Acumen Fund.
The Acumen Fund helps in the fight to eliminate poverty with dignity and accountability, to create sustainable businesses that provide basic services, providing jobs and solutions that work long term, such as making and distributing mosquito bed nets, distributing clean water and drip irrigation for farmers. Because it is not charity, the local people are involved in the businesses of production and distribution and the customers take good care of it because they have to pay for it. After providing these solutions for the people, they go back and measure the impact to know if they need to make any changes.
This book showed me why Charity does not work by itself. Charity should only be a short term solution used in emergency situations.
I understand now why some developing countries have said that tourism has greatly harmed them, creating beggars and thieves where people used to work to provide for their families. Charity can have that same result.

Di Hannah Munoz - Pubblicato su

Jacqueline Novogratz is proof that with perseverance and passion, anything is possible. In her book she authored, The Blue Sweater, she talks about her experience as an American girl who got a job in Africa to help women make loans with the hope that they would become self sufficient. Although it seemed like a simple job, it resulted in countless defeats and frustrations because the natives did not accept her. The people in Africa viewed her as a young, naive foreigner who was clueless about their culture, so they made it almost difficult for her to implement almost any sort of new system. She continued to persevere, however. Once she was able to taste some success by setting up an effective system, however, the women did not understand the process of a loan, and did not respect their due payments. Novogratz then took the responsibility to teach the women how to develop and manage their businesses. Along with these efforts, Novogratz attempted to instill a sense of self confidence in each woman that she encountered. She believes confidence is not only a large component of doing business, but sincerely cared about each individual's situations. Due to her dedication and unwavering resilience, she was accepted by the African women, and later found success not only in Africa, but also when she returned to the United States. Novogratz went on to develop Acumen Fund, an organization that uses philanthropic assets to make closely controlled investments that result in both financial and social profits, which is an international organization.
Although Novogratz may not view herself as a change maker, it is obvious that after reading her story, she changed many people's lives. Not only did she change those lives she worked with, but I believe she changes readers' lives after hearing her story. In The Blue Sweater, Novogratz explains her story of leaving a corporate banking position to go to Africa and help women. The fact that she was able to take that leap of faith to go to Africa and work for a nonprofit corporations says enough about her. She is not interested in wealth or recognition; she clearly wanted to help others. Her account is certainly one of the most inspiring stories I've heard, and it was even more touching because I was able to relate to her passion in wanting to change the world. After reading this book, I was left with the message that I should not only continue pursuing my dreams, but help others accomplish their by providing them with a means to do so. No matter how badly you think you're failing, reading The Blue Sweater is like Novogratz whispering in your ear, "Don't dwell on your failures, you've come such a long way and you still have so much to accomplish."
I would 100 percent recommend reading this book. Not only will it open your eyes to some of the world's most pressing social problems, Novogratz will inspire you to want to make a change within the world - and she encourages you to believe that it is possible.
