jim-grant_166-remembering-jim-grant-champion-of-childrenPresented by Other News publications “Remembering Jim Grant: Champion for Children”, an online edition of the book dedicated to Jim Grant, the great visionary who saved 25 million children. A different time, a time of hope and commitment, comes alive through those who met and worked with him. This has been made possible by the work of several people, many of them working pro bono.

This initiative was in no way a commercial venture, which is why ON is distributing the book in English free of charge here, and asking all of you to circulate it as widely as possible. We are also considering a printed version for publishing before summer.

However, ON and friends  had to sustain translation, editing and layout costs. Therefore, any donation to recover at least part of these costs would be appreciated, also because this would help give the initiative a broader sense of ownership. We will send an audited report on costs and donations to all donors. In the very unlikely event that there is a surplus, we will decide together with the donors how to use it, always in Jim’s memory and in line with his vision. Please bear in mind that OtherNews is a not-for-profit organisation, registered in Rome.

About adhiratha

I joined the UN Secretariat in 1973 and UNICEF in 1974. During 2005-2006 I was on loan from UNICEF to UN Secretariat for special projects and between 2007 to 2010 was a consultant specialist for UNFPA. Have also been consultant or unpaid volunteer for various NGO's . My fathers favorite quote from Sri Chinmoy was : "There is only one perfect road and that road is ahead of you ,, Always Ahead of you...". Association with organizations that seek to implement the UN Charters goal of practical "oneness" feels like an inner connection or reality that is not time or position bound.
