In order to expand everyone’s knowledge of global poverty and the problems facing today’s world, we decided to create publications focusing on poverty and how we can all work to make the world a better place.
Living on a Dollar a Day (W.W. Norton 2014) written by TFI president Tom Nazario, with photographs from the Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer, features text and pictures to tell the stories of individuals around the world struggling under the harshest conditions of poverty.
A documentary of the making of the Living on a Dollar a Day book has been created as well. This film follows the work of the team as they travel to ten different countries on four continents in order to explore the ways in which poverty impacts communities. Experts in the field are interviewed as well.
In an attempt to engage youth with the pressing challenges facing the world and develop caring individuals to help address these problems, we have created a compassion education curriculum called Doing Good. This educational manual is co-written by Tom Nazario and educator Kelly Quayle. It will be published by Rowman & Littlefield in Spring 2017.
