Overview

"Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs peoples dignity, freedom, and hope, of power over their own lives." (Statement by the Christian Aid charity.) All around the world - in both wealthy and less economically developed countries - there are charities trying to improve the lives of those in poverty. This book looks at the efforts of charity workers and volunteers, with exciting stories and case studies, and gives advice on how readers can get involved.
