Peacemaker of the Year - Speaking Tour

Kari Grady Grossman is a dynamic and inspirational keynote speaker who combines readings from her award-winning book, Bones That Float, A Story of Adopting Cambodia with a short documentary film.

She speaks eloquently about fighting poverty and oppression in Cambodia through the school she and her husband built in 2001 and the creation of their non-profit, Sustainable Schools International.

If you've ever dreamed of changing the world, this is a story you won't want to miss. Much more than an adoption tale, Kari inspires audiences interested in social justice, history, education, global awareness and activism.

    Kari speaks with inspiration and authority from personal experience about the following:

        • Making a Difference

        • Sustainable Education & Economic Development

        • Global Awareness & Activism

        • Empowering Women

        • Donor Aid Issues: The relationship matters as much as the money

        • International Adoption & Infertility

        • International Birth Family Search

        • Having a Mission and Seeing it Through


    “An effective and hopeful call to action – a nudge to your social conscience that will have you asking, ‘What’s my Cambodia?’ ”

        –Angel Limb, Public Radio, Richmond, Virginia

    “The audience displayed an intense focus on this woman in pursuit of making a difference in this world by serving the children of Cambodia—especially exciting because it has no ending. Within her presentation, Kari has instilled in us the opportunity to dream and allow us to realize that we, too, can ‘be the change.’ ”

        –Andy Heath, CRPC, CFM, Assistant Vice President – Merrill Lynch

    “One of the most inspiring presentations I have ever heard, she has strengthened my faith in the human race.”
