Putting people first - Annual Review 2014
Across the world billions of people do not have the resources they need to live decent lives, such as food and water, energy and housing. This is poverty, and it cannot be separated from inequality, the erosion of democracy, discrimination and oppression and the injustice that runs through our own society in Britain.
Poverty will not be solved by the development of free markets, or even by a well-intentioned charity. It will be solved by challenging the structures and institutions which govern our global economy. This is the approach we take. It sounds like a massive agenda for a small organisation. Yet the strides forward we’ve made in 2014, documented in this annual report, show that our cause is far from hopeless.
