South Asian Adventures with the Active Poor, by Gem Munro, is a collection of true short stories about some extraordinary women and men in the slums of Bangladesh and how Amarok Society started in Bangladesh.
Climb up into Wahid's bicycle-rickshaw, and ready yourself for the ride of your life - or, rather, of Munni's life, or Rohima's, or Amena's. Take a rare journey into the real slums of South Asia, into the secret heart of what may be the world's least known, least cosmopolitan, most surreal major city, and into the hearts of its poorest inhabitants, where struggles for survival, love and dignity don't lead to game shows, but may lead, perhaps with destiny's intervention, into one of a unique system of schools established by a Canadian family of mother, father and four children who had the double misfortune of seeing the suffering of the extremely poor at close range and designing a program in answer that was too successful to stop.
