For the past 15 years, A Future Without Poverty (FWOP) has worked to build a network of individuals, institutions, community organizations, foundations, religious organizations, international non-government organizations, corporations and government agencies to join in its mission to reduce global poverty. These 15 years have provided us the opportunity to learn first-hand about the many activities that are being done to attempt to reduce global poverty.
All of these experiences have guided FWOP to the following conclusion:
There is a need to form a global coalition committed to promoting local solutions to reduce poverty that are economically and environmentally sustainable.
FWOP has found many examples of successful efforts to reduce poverty in communities around the world. In most cases the programs that have been successful are initiated by local entrepreneurs and assisted by outside resources that offer an investment in the program and work with local leadership to meet their dreams for a future without poverty.
The Coalition for A Future Without Poverty will encourage all levels of the global community to share ideas and work collectively to find locally based solutions that are economically and environmentally sustainable. FWOP will spend the next 12 months asking individuals, institutions, community organizations, foundations, religious organizations, international non-government organizations, corporations and government agencies to join the coalition to reduce global poverty.
FWOP will collect success stories from individuals in communities around the globe and share them through our website and other social media. This will help the global community to identify those common denominators that are identified by those who are reducing their life of poverty.
If you are involved with, or aware of, a program that we should review for inclusion in our global list of local success stories please send the following information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
