Poverty is costly, wasteful and risky! Essentially poverty squanders resources. Society in general shuns the poor rather than recognising them as people just like us! Help us change attitudes!
Reducing inequality of wealth, income, participation and opportunity is no longer a marginal issue but high on political agendas around the world. Inequality lies at “the root of social ills”, is linked to poverty, and we ignore it at our own peril.
Poverty and inequality typically result in poor environmental impacts such as bad drinking water and deforestation. Poverty and need are the biggest polluters! And the problem exists both here and around the globe. As we value our clean, green image then so should we take steps to address the poverty, inequality and environmental stress triangle!
