Walking Across Southern Africa to Fight Global Poverty
Back in February, we shared an interview with Matt Napier, an Australian who is passionate about fighting global poverty and was about to undertake an ambitious walk across southern Africa to raise funds and awareness for the world’s poorest pe...
The Canonization of Inefficiency: Why we need to do better than Mother Teresa and the Vatican
The well-founded and well-documented criticism that has been lobbed at Mother Teresa since the mid-1990s has largely failed to shake her public perception as a saint.
