“This book is a revelation. One idea, one person, one movement and the chance to change the world.”

-Seth Godin, author, The Song of Significance

“Danielle’s story shows the power of resilience and, most of all, the power of an idea that can save lives and our planet. Our teams have volunteered with Afya for years, and we’ve seen firsthand her nonprofit’s amazing work and impact.”

-Michael Miebach, CEO of Mastercard

“Wild Hope Now” by Danielle Butin tells her transformative journey as a practitioner who discovers her life’s purpose through aiding others. From a meeting with a physician visiting Tanzania facing struggles and resource shortages, she is inspired to found Afya, an organization dedicated to supplying medical essentials to those in need.

This compelling account showcases Afya’s impactful endeavors, from assisting refugees in Lesvos to providing aid in Puerto Rico post-natural disasters and supporting doctors in Ukraine during times of conflict. Butin’s story emphasizes the essence of taking action, illustrating how even in the midst of adversity, meaningful change can be sparked.

“Wild Hope Now” serves as a rallying call, encouraging readers to recognize the power of initiative and the impact of small actions in creating significant change. Through Butin’s experiences, the book resonates with the idea that waiting for perfection inhibits progress, and it’s the courage to act that births innovation where it’s needed most.

This book is an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit and a reminder that each individual possesses the capacity to make a profound difference. Butin’s narrative ignites a sense of hope and empowerment, urging us all to embrace the challenge, take action, and pave the way for a world where compassion and change prevail.

-Jack Knott, Dean of the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University

-Nina Freedman

“The story of AFYA is proof that enormous power lives in our capacity to bear witness to great sorrow and see the potential for resilience and hope. I am honored to be part of that story; I consider Danielle an invaluable partner and a a dear friend. From the first moment Danielle and I first worked together in Haiti, AFYA has been an inspiration, proof of all the good that can happen when we take action in community with others. “
