All poverty arises from a complex set of interrelated causes, often tied to failures in politics and governance along with systematic marginalization of minorities, migrants, and—almost universally across cultures—women. So as each family situation is different, making broad solutions likewise difficult. However we believe we can use current research (including our own), to point to an emerging set of scalable, science-based solutions that can break the trap. Moreover, we use the research to develop organization policy which will implement on the ground practical and measurable solutions. Some solutions will be “emergency” activity to deal with immediate needs, such as food, shelter,clothing, etc. Sustainable solutions will take a more wrap-around approach where our organization will walk alongside our clients in addressing their more long-term sustainability needs.
