In 2002, Elaine Bannon took a holiday in Kenya. There, what she saw changed her life. Deciding to dedicate herself to volunteer work in eastern Africa, 'The Power of One' charts the inspirational journey and work of this Dublin woman.
This book also explores the ‘question’ of Africa and global poverty, highlighting the inadequate responses of the West, and the need for a greater sense of urgency towards finding a redemptive solution to the plight of so many millions.
The story of Elaine Bannon reminds us that the work of just one person can make a world of change.
