Poverty and Promise: One Volunteers Experience of Kenya reviewed by Library Journal on 3-15-10!
This title's 2008 trade paperback edition won an Independent Publisher Award and a Next Generation Indie Award and was a finalist for the Glyph Award for Best First Book by a New Publisher. In this audio edition read by the author, Brown tells of her humanitarian efforts in the area of community health with an international relief organization in Kenya. Passionate about her work but concerned for her personal safety, she ended up returning home to the United States before completing her two-year contract. Brown beautifully conveys her range of feelings throughout her stay, from surprise and delight to fear and frustration.
Publishers Weekly wrote: Though Brown decided to return to America before finishing her two-year contract in Kenya with U.K.-based international relief organization VSO (Voluntary Services Overseas), she relishes her recent experiences there in this compassionate, affecting memoir. She describes her work for the TICH (Tropical Institute of Community Health and Development), the programs they try hard to implement, and the hours she and her colleagues spend in training. Impressed with her natural surroundings, Brown endures overbearing heat and celebrates the country's intrinsic grace ("I see more than dustiness, more than landscapes made hazy by the sun's glare") while witnessing the harsh living conditions, constant hunger, disease, crime and corruption plaguing its citizens; young men repeatedly try to befriend her, hoping to marry and emigrate to the United States. Though ultimately unnerved and overwhelmed, Brown conveys her story honestly and effectively, upfront about her fear and frustration, as well as the rare occasion for hope. Book proceeds go to support programs in western Kenya.
"An inspiring journey of the soul, and a rare insight into the lives of Kenyans. The author shares her emotional struggles dealing with overwhelming poverty; and with the cultural stereotypes and doubts that keep most of us from ever embarking on such a courageous journey."
