Articles by and about Betsy Teutsch & 100 Under $100
Business Fights Poverty: Featuring 100 Under $100 -“The world’s largest network of Professionals harnessing business for social impact.” – August 25, 2015
“With an impartial but caring eye, a passion for women’s wellbeing and crystal clear prose, Teutsch describes the essence of the innovations, and converts statistics into accessible facts and stories. The author’s experience as a writer and calligraphy artist—where structure and harmony are supreme—shines through.” – Daisy Ouya
“The writing of 100 Under $100 never felt like work, not for one second. It was so inspiring to read these stories of women who had really come up with great solutions and were giving their time and energy and their talents to help women around the world.”
The Who, What & Why of the Artistic Process
We sat down a few days ago with Betsy Platkin Teutsch, a prominent figure in the contemporary Jewish renaissance, the author of 100 Under $100, One Hundred Tools for Empowering Global Women, and an accomplished Judaica artist, renowned for her captivating ketubot, ceremonial objects and book illustrations. Here are our questions and Betsy’s answers. “The world’s largest network of Professionals harnessing business for social impact.” – August 25, 2015
The Daily Forward Sisterhood: Lessons of Tselofehad Resound in Modern-Day Botswana
“While researching my new book , I was astonished to encounter a 2013 High Court ruling in Botswana, the culmination of a five year legal battle waged by four elderly sisters, Edith Mmusi (then 80), Bakhani Moima (83), Jane Lekoko (77), and Mercy Ntsehkisang (68). These gutsy women petitioned, appealed, and ultimately triumphed in their quest to inherit their father’s property.”
“The size, format, and stunning photography makes 100 Under $100 a lovely coffee table book; however, it is clear that Teutsch’s intention is to have this book used a s a resource for teachers, aid workers, and development professionals. If I could wave a magic wand, every PCV would be equipped with this invaluable treasure trove of inspiring ideas.” – RCVP Amy Cohen, Director of Education, History Making Productions
Daisy Ouya writes from Nairobi’s World Agroforestry Centre. “With an impartial but caring eye, a passion for women’s wellbeing and crystal clear prose, Teutsch describes the essence of the innovations, and converts statistics into accessible facts and stories.”
FoodTank, a premier site focusing on sustainable food, chose 100 Under $100 to head up its list! “This compelling book examines the effective, low-cost solutions available for helping women in developing countries out of poverty. Teutsch reviews a variety of opportunities for women, providing readers with a deeper understanding of the tools available to empower women and alleviate poverty.”
Author Betsy Teutsch includes the WaterWheel alongside a wide range of other, simple, low-cost business solutions to poverty in her new book, 100 under $100: One Hundred Tools for Empowering Global Women.
Betsy: “I wanted to raise awareness among people in a position to help that there are already terrific, affordable solutions for many problems poor women face; the challenge is financing and distribution. Impoverished women work incredibly hard day-in and day-out – as farmers, merchants, laborers, and of course as care-providers. They should not be spending their time walking hours to find water and lugging it home, collecting wood for fires to cook over, or trying to find a place to relieve themselves because they have no safe latrines. It is crazy that so many women in the world have been passed over by the 20th century. No electricity, no running water!”
“Grads, you are never done figuring out what you want to do when you grow up. Keep on looking for the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.
