This ‘Ordinary’ Canadian Couple Prove That Any of Us Can Make a Meaningful Difference in the Lives of Others
Host and award-winning journalist, Dean Rotbart, and his multi-talented wife, Talya, recently co-authored a book about two Canadian entrepreneurs, Margaret and Riyaz Adat, who have become global role models for do-it-yourself charitable projects.
The book, Perfectly Ordinary, Yet Extraordinary, recounts how the Adats, an upper-middle-class couple, used determination, focus, love, and limited personal resources to rescue a woebegone school in faraway Arusha, Tanzania, from the brink of collapse.
This week, on a very special edition, Margaret and Riyaz join Dean to share their experiences and lessons-learned, noting that anyone, no matter their resources, really can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
p.s. Rotary International and the Rotary Club of Willowdale (Toronto) received well-earned plaudits for helping the Adats.
