The Life You Can Save

How to play your part in ending world poverty

'Brilliant. A practical plan to eradicate world poverty' Observer

Would you walk past a drowning child?

This is a book that will change the way you think about giving. It shows what you can do, as an individual, about the fact that more than a billion people are living in extreme poverty. It argues for an urgent change in our culture, and it invites you to play your part.

The complexities of the aid debate are well rehearsed; the phrase 'charity begins at home' is all too familiar; the sheer scale of the task is overwhelming. But Singer, who has been writing for more than three decades about how we should respond to hunger and poverty, suggests that anything other than urgent and direct action is tantamount to walking by.

If enough people regularly give a small amount, he says, we can together make a significant difference.

Find out about the life you can save.
