In 2002, Elaine Bannon took a working holiday in Kenya. There, her experience as a volunteer changed not only the lives of the semi-nomadic Maasai people with whom she worked, but also her own.
Dedicating herself to volunteer work in eastern Africa, The Power of One: The Story of Elaine Bannon and the People of Rombo, Kenya charts the inspirational journey and work of one 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 for seeking 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.
