I am because you are : how the spirit of ubuntu inspired an unlikely friendship and transformed a community by Jacob Lief( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 190 libraries worldwide
"In 1998, Jacob Lief, a 21-year-old American university student, met school teacher Malizole "Banks" Gwaxula in a township tavern in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. After bonding over beers and a shared passion for education, Gwaxula invited Lief to live with him in the township. Inspired by their fortuitous meeting-which brought together two men separated by race, nationality, and age-and by the spirit of ubuntu, roughly translated as "I am because you are"--The two men embarked on an unexpectedly profound journey. Their vision? To provide vulnerable children in the townships with what every child deserves-everything. Today, their organization, Ubuntu Education Fund, is upending conventional wisdom about how to break the cycle of poverty. Shunning traditional development models, Ubuntu has redefined the concept of scale, focusing on how deeply it can impact each child's life rather than how many it can reach. Ubuntu provides everything a child needs and deserves, from prenatal care for pregnant mothers to support through university-essentially, from cradle to career. Their child-centered approach reminds us that one's birthplace should not determine one's future. I Am Because You Are sets forth an unflinching portrayal of the unique rewards and challenges of the nonprofit world while offering a bold vision for a new model of development"--

The soggy victim is well known to Temple Barr, Louie's redheaded, high-heeled human companion. Her two best beaux have been closely involved with the dead man, and both have reasons to want him dead. Maybe now, by finding out which of her beaux is the killer, Temple can finally choose between handsome hotline counselor Matt Devine and mysterious magician, Max Kinsella. And then there are the new girls in town: a sultry lady magician named Shangri-La, who may play a bigger role than anyone might imagine, and her winsome Siamese cat, who may solve Louie's problems by giving him the key to her heart -- or the key to solving the mystery
