About the Book

When Constantin Salameh landed, nearly four years ago, at Accra airport, he never thought that more than a hundred trips would follow, leading him to his inner destiny.

While the last thirty-five years spent working with multinationals and large investment groups all over the world provided him with solid expertise, the time came when he realized that his inner drive was to push his action further and aim to make a difference where it mattered most.

This book is the epitome of his African experience at both the personal and emotional levels, resonating strongly in his heart, urging him to return the favor. The full proceeds from this book will go to The Happy Childhood Foundation in Africa which cares for underprivileged children.
