We are all in this together. At times we find inspiration to make changes in our lives through the eyes of another. Likewise, we can be inspired by making a difference in the lives of others. This is an ongoing collection of that inspiration, helping us all get involved!
Our inspiration for January 2021 comes from the young women of Cameroon, Africa. The critically-acclaimed novel "Rebuke the Wind" is a fictional story about a young African girl from Sahel named Isa who has been kidnapped by the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram. "Rebuke the Wind" is a testament of courage that sheds light on the nuanced and mostly invisible atrocities enacted for over twenty years by terrorists in the region. Written by Trip Mackinstosh, an internationally recognized lawyer who specializes in counter-terrorism and has first hand experience with life in Cameroon, Africa. - All proceeds from the sale of this novel go directly to Social Development International (SODEIT), a non-profit social development and relief organization based in Cameroon to support the young women of Sahel. Every book purchase is a contribution to this charity.
