THE HOLISTIC POVERTY ERADICATION MODEL

Poverty is complex and multidimensional, therefore, it calls for a comprehensive approach to eradication, addressing all aspects of a family’s life including meeting their basic needs, educating the children, having access to affordable healthcare and, most importantly, helping them to develop a skill and/or trade to generate income. It is equally important to provide them with support and encouragement throughout their journey to self-sufficiency as living in poverty is not just an economic state but also an emotional one.
