The springs of namje: a ten-year journey from the villages of nepal to the halls of congress
A Peace Corps volunteer shares his inspirational story about the power of small change, and shows how young Americans can be effective activists and make a global impact.
In The Springs of Namje, lawyer, activist, and former Peace Corps volunteer Rajeev Goyal reflects on what he learned from his experiences in Namje, a small village in eastern Nepal, and in the halls of Congress. He candidly considers what constitutes an effective activist, and he outlines how the Peace Corps and other organizations must evolve to better partner with local communities. With a focus on environmentalism and bottom-up, not top-down, activism, Goyal passionately argues that we can no longer rely on outdated models of foreign aid and shows how architects and designers, farmers and teachers, builders and environmentalists, and, especially, young Americans are in a unique position to contribute to this new world.
