Agents of Change by George Bryant

Agents of Change -

gents of Change: Kiwis Making A Real Difference contains the stories of fifteen Kiwis who are making a real difference to the way we live, in communities throughout New Zealand. Some are making housing affordable and offering comprehensive care services. Others are saving teenagers from addictions and transforming low socio-economic areas. Read about how a doctor and his wife are running a unique medical clinic, and how a former crisis nurse is leading a top line chaplaincy service. Some stories portray people improving race relations, making workplaces safe, and influencing local and national politics. One person has set up rural social services; one is painting scenes that inspire; and another is a leader in progressive education. The book examines the motivations behind these inspirational people. Why do they become agents of change? And what sorts of people are they?
