Would you care to look?

"I like that the stories come from different perspectives and addresses the nuances and complexities of real life situations on the ground. I don’t mind that there are no answers, because I think just reading about how things aren’t black and white is a value add."

- WL, Researcher in Social Innovation

"It is an easy read. I did not need to know a lot about the social service sector to be able to sit in the emotions with the contributor in each chapter."

- JK, Medical Social Worker

"The stories are real and raw and I really like how this book highlights the lives of these unseen heroes. It also serves as an insightful conversation starter."

- BW, Tertiary education Student
