The Mindset of a Refugee: Understanding the human potential for current and former refugees to change our planet is part autobiography, part call to action. In the book, author Joseph Minani recalls his childhood through the fictional character Karenzo-a young boy living with his family in a Tanzanian refugee camp. Through Minani's words, you'll learn of other true stories that prove refugees can offer value to the countries that take them in while advocating for change and help with the international crisis.
In this book, you'll learn about the power of a mindset forged by adversity through:
- Karenzo's experiences in a refugee camp and his journey to the United States
- Stories of refugees who persevered and reached happiness and success
- Interviews with professionals working on the front lines to help refugees
Minani looks to break the stereotypes and stigmas portrayed through the media and prove that refugees deserve fair treatment. You'll understand the need for refugees to be directly involved in finding solutions for the problems faced in camps and during the resettlement process. You will be inspired to believe that everyone deserves a right to life, equality, freedom, and a future with endless possibilities.
