Minus expenses, all author royalties on the sale of these hardback and paperback editions will be going to Action Aid - Jon Collins
"ActionAid is a unique partnership of people who are fighting for a better world - a world without poverty. As one of the UK’s largest development agencies, we work in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, listening to, learning from and working in partnership with over nine million of the world’s poorest people.
"Our vision is a world without poverty in which every person can exercise their right to a life of dignity.
"Our mission is to work with poor and marginalised people to eradicate poverty by overcoming the injustice and inequity that cause it. As an organisation, we live and work by the following values: mutual respect, equity and justice, honesty and transparency, solidarity with poor and marginalised people, courage of conviction, humility.
"We believe that by fighting poverty together - working with poor local communities, national governments and international organisations - we can help bring about real change to the lives of poor people."
