  • Restore hope: Make dreams come true
    Poverty is much more than simply a lack of material resources, and takes much more than donation and handout to solve it. It hurts individuals and families and of course a nation. In combating poverty, philanthropies as well as organisations fail to consider the factors and complexities involved. We need to consider the complexities of poverty, making sure our efforts are not failing those we intend to help and our efforts are not doing more harm than good.
