Poverty is relative.

Poverty occurs in all races and in all countries.

Economic class is a continuous line, not a clear-cut distinction.

Generational poverty and situational poverty are different.

We cannot blame the victims of poverty for being in poverty.

We cannot continue to support stereotypes and prejudices about the poor.


Reasons people leave poverty:

  1. Too painful to stay
  2. A vision or a goal
  3. A talent or a skill
  4. A significant relationship
