Combatting Poverty Through Systemic Change

My friend John Freund, C.M., has gathered a treasure trove of resources on systemic change in the Vincentian Encyclopedia on the famvin website.  The systemic change approach to poverty, which has been embodied in a number of movements, emphasizes involving the poor themselves, a holistic vision that addresses a series of basic human needs and espeically self-help and self-sustaining programs particularly aimed at the root causes of poverty.  The Vincentian Encyclyopedia material on the subject includes some terrific media resouces and can be accessed here.   The Vincentian Community is committed to identifying and exploring strategies that implement systemic change; see here for a dicussion of their focus.
