End Poverty

Religions for Peace recognizes that extreme poverty threatens peace and human flourishing by depleting health, perpetuating existing inequalities, and jeopardizing access to basic human rights.

Civil society organizations, religions and people of faith have many ways to intervene in the poverty cycle. From mobilizing campaigns around global commitments, to working with governments to ensure appropriate and equally accessible services, to local advocacy for education for boys and girls alike, to empowering people with the skills and training that prepares them for active and productive citizenship, religious communities are in a powerful position to restore hope and opportunities to poor people who are striving to lift themselves and their children out of poverty.
