Poverty is a cycle. It can be broken.

 

Around the world, 800 million people are living in poverty.

 

85 percent of them live in rural areas affected by an environmental crisis.

The Challenges

Environmental Crises

When environmental systems are mistreated, deforested, and polluted, all forms of life suffer. People face smaller crop yields, unhealthy land, and a vulnerability to famine or disaster.

Economic Poverty

Living in poverty is a daily struggle for survival. Families who are only one emergency away from a catastrophe have no opportunity to save or plan for the future.

Spiritual Hunger

Unproductive work and the stress of poverty strains relationships, decreases motivation, and robs people of God-given dignity. Spiritual growth is stifled by desperation.
