STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"It's time to put an end to poverty

No-one has a bigger interest in fighting poverty than poor people themselves, who live in poverty every day and have to cope with the many suffocating, humiliating and disastrous consequences.Poverty is a disgrace to all of humanity and it is time to put an end to it.We cannot be silent bystanders to see this happening in the world of today, when we actually have the opportunity to do something. With the courses described in this booklet, we call upon all of you who have the same wish to take up the fight against poverty, shoulder to shoulder with the poor, to come forward. Together we can end poverty, one small step at a time.The causes of poverty are deeply imbedded in many powerful established systems and global structures, which intentionally or unintentionally, not only keep a huge part of the world's population in poverty, but also drive an increasing number of people into poverty.We do not have all the answers for how to do this, but we know that we cannot stay passive. And we also know the power of ordinary people uniting their forces, sharing their ideas and passions, and going for finding solutions.

We appeal to you to become a "Poverty Fighter" and together with us, with each other and with the poor people in the Americas, take up the fight to end poverty.If this appeal strikes a cord in your passion then read on and decide how you can be a part. If not, read on anyway and consider where you stand."
