What We Believe in
The lives of all human beings are of equal value and all have equal rights. poverty makes people more vulnerable to conflict and natural calamity (including climate change). People’s vulnerability to poverty and injustice is increased by inequality based on, for example, gender, race, ethnicity, class, caste and disability; women are especially disadvantaged. Overcoming poverty and injustice involves changing ideas and beliefs, institutions, policies, and practices. Technology and markets are part of lasting solutions to poverty; but people must be empowered to harness them. To overcome poverty and injustice people must take control of their own lives. Working together as global citizens we can build a just and safer world
