Action on Poverty

Action on Poverty

Action on Poverty is an international development organisation that empowers local changemakers to transform their communities and break the cycle of entrenched poverty. They take a rights-based approach to poverty reduction. This means they work to address the underlying causes of poverty, not just its effects. This approach also ensures that the benefits of development are shared equally, especially among vulnerable groups such as women and ethnic minorities.
