Poverty Perspectives

February 17, 2012

The poverty expe­ri­ence is often mis­un­der­stood and every expe­ri­ence is unique. We work to engage the com­mu­nity in look­ing at poverty in a new way, bring­ing the indi­vid­ual back in to a word that defines some­one by their eco­nomic sta­tus. We inter­view peo­ple with a broad range of poverty expe­ri­ences, and incor­po­rate their voices into our train­ing. Click on a photo below to expe­ri­ence what poverty feels like to each of our volunteers.
