A Long Walk To Water
Linda Sue Park
Why I chose this book?
- "Take small steps in the right direction"
When picking my personal project topic I came across Sole Hope and was interested. I thought i was so cool how I could do a small action here in America (cutting out templets, raising money, putting together medicine kits...etc) could make such a huge impact in Uganda, half was across the world (job for unemployed, cure tigers in children feet, provide shoes).
