Poverty Reduction

OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION

Poverty Reduction is set out as the first of the Millennium Development Goals. With one fifth of the planet's people living on less than $1 a day, poverty remains an important issue impacting not only those effected, but society as a whole. Poverty is often only recognized when associated with mortal outcomes. Yet, poverty in Barbados and the OECS has a different, less obvious face. Although people may not be starving, their standard of living is poor and caught in the vicious cycle.
