A chapter excerpt from the book, by John Wood:
Education has a ripple eﬀect.
One drop can
initiate a cascade of possibility, each concentric
circle gaining in size and traveling further.
If you get education right, you get many things
right: escape from poverty, better family health,
and improved status of women.
Educate a girl, and you educate her children and
generations to follow.
Yet for hundreds of millions of kids in the
developing world, the ripple never begins. Instead,
there's a seemingly inescapable whirlpool of
poverty. In the words of a headmaster I once met
in Nepal: "We are too poor to aﬀord education.
The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago.
The second best time is now.
