One Hen- How One Small Loan Made a Big Difference

Book
 

One Hen- How One Small Loan Made a Big Difference, by Katie Smith Milway

Inspired by true events, One Hen tells the story of Kojo, a boy from Ghana who turns a small loan into a thriving farm and a livelihood for many. After his father died, Kojo had to quit school to help his mother collect firewood to sell at the market. When his mother receives a loan from some village families, she gives a little money to her son. With this tiny loan, Kojo buys a hen. A year later, Kojo has built up a flock of 25 hens. With his earnings Kojo is able to return to school. Soon Kojo's farm grows to become the largest in the region.

Kojo's story is inspired by the life of Kwabena Darko, who as a boy started a tiny poultry farm just like Kojo's, which later grew to be the largest in Ghana, and one of the largest in west Africa. Kwabena also started a trust that gives out small loans to people who cannot get a loan from a bank. One Hen shows what happens when a little help makes a big difference.

The Adventures of Mali & Keela

Book
 

The Adventures of Mali & Keela: A Virtues Book for Children, by Jonathan Collins

Thirteen adventure stories introduce children to the concept of virtue and demonstrate how virtuous behavior can make the world a better place. Each tale is built around four of the 52 virtues that have been identified by The Virtues Project™, a global grassroots initiative that inspires the practice of virtues in everyday life. The collected stories bring the virtues to life in lively, entertaining adventure tales designed to be read aloud to young listeners. Each tale is followed by clear, age-appropriate definitions of the virtues for the adult reader and the young audience to explore. Discussion questions are also provided to draw the children into a conversation about each story. These interactive tools foster a more profound understanding of the virtues, help children put each virtue into context within their own experiences, and provide a rich environment for learning—while young and old enjoy the thrill of a well-told yarn.
