A just and sustainable world without the inequalities that keep people in poverty
By helping people claim their basic human rights, we’ve been tackling poverty and empowering communities to build better lives for themselves for more than 67 years. Yet the world around us is changing and so are we. We believe that inequality holds people back from taking control of their lives and escaping poverty. From unequal income, economic opportunities and access to basic services, to the unequal impacts of climate damage internationally, inequality causes poverty. We tackle inequality because poverty in the 21st century is less a problem of scarcity, rather the result of how resources, opportunities, and protections are distributed and wielded. That’s why we are part of a global movement of people working together to eliminate poverty by tackling inequality.
