We are a global community of the like-minded, an independent charity whose shared intention is to alleviate poverty and suffering around the world.
We channel our resources into projects that directly connect communities to communities; donor to recipient, person to person. We deliver help on the ground through local partnerships, networks and individuals connecting them with international projects that inspire us, have a gift for their work and a clear vision for what they wish to achieve, we help change lives by meeting basic needs: food, housing, education, shelter, giving people legitimacy and legal status. Our projects are designed to empower greater self-sufficiency, new hope and a more sustainable future – a handshake, not a hand out.
How do we do that?
We have formed communities of individuals like you who share the same passion; businesses who care about communities and social responsibility (Business against Poverty) and educational establishments wishing to engage students directly and creatively in poverty relief (UK Schools Programme) all working collectively through us your chosen charity, People against Poverty.
