Hope on the Horizon: A children’s handbook on empathy, kindness and making a better world

Something isn’t fair, something is wrong or just needs fixing; you can help. No one is too small to make a difference. Best-selling author and Human Rights campaigner, Injali Q. Rauf has written just the hand book for you.  In her latest book ‘Hope on the Horizon’ she shares her top ten ways for creating change and making a better tomorrow in a very engaging, entertaining manner.

As a young child Injali dreamed of being a superhero like the ones she read about in books; Superman particularly took her fancy. As she grew older, she noticed that everyone has superhero powers and even the youngest person can make the world a happier place. By using characters from her favourite, well known books and examples from her own life, she demonstrates how even the smallest acts of kindness, empathy and friendship make for a better world. 

Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the ‘adventure’.  She highlights the things which the reader may think or worry about but may feel powerless to change.  By re-counting the lives and achievements of not only well known activists such as Oprah Winfrey and Mandela, but also the little known remarkable people such as Ruhi Loren and Mariss Begonia, she encourages the reader to take up the challenge. Her ‘Call to Action’ pages give them a host of ideas of how to get started.

Remember there is no such thing as an action too small. You never know where that action might lead and how it will make others feel; a smile will do the trick!

Note to Parents: Topics such as domestic violence, racial discrimination and injustice, although handled sensitively, are included. To allow the reader to further pursue a particular topic, the author has included a list of resources and links to the charities discussed in her book.
