Description Solomon Awan's insight about what management educators can do to respond to the world's impoverished citizens was gained through the results of a harrowing journey as an eight-year-old boy; a "Lost Boy of Sudan". Solomon's essay tells how management education can be a vehicle to stop violence and reduce abject poverty. Three learning points discussed in this essay include that: business is a means for survival; education is a tool to save lives; and profit opportunities exist within the most impoverished parts of the world. This compelling essay allows the reader a glimpse into the challenges that face those who struggle to survive in a society without business opportunity. More importantly, Solomon's essay provides ideas for management educators so that they can make a difference in the creation of peace and economic prosperity throughout the world.
