What drives us
Poverty is a moral problem for the free, democratic society apart from its social, cultural or humanitarian manifestations. The ‘freedom’ of pursuing individual welfare and the ‘responsibility’ of ensuring a common minimum opportunity for all members to do so, capture the quintessential structural duality of free societies.
Since decades, development agencies have been trying to address the issue of poverty and inequality. Strategies have been put in to practice to make things easier or cheaper for the poor but rarely equal. Programs have been implemented to build capacity or static skill among poor but efforts to develop capability and self-efficacy have been largely omitted.
An opportunity for a sustainable livelihood for all to preserve the dignity of life is the basic premise of a free society. We cannot easily change or undo the existing distribution of resources. However, what we can definitely achieve is to offer all members of the society the capability and the freedom to access available opportunities for individual welfare.
