What Can One Person Do? Summary


What Can One Person Do?: Faith to Heal a Broken World by Sabina Alkire

This book offers suggestions for real things that we can do to help bring the vision of a world without poverty a step closer. Imagine living on the equivalent of fifty pence a day - or less. That is the reality for over a billion people around the world right now. And the `prison of poverty' is not just about money: it is about facing daily hunger, disease and premature death. It is about not having clean water to give your children, about not being able to give them access to the education that will make their lives different from yours. The eight Millennium Development Goals lay out a vision of halving extreme global poverty by 2015, providing a road map for tackling depravation, instability, HIV/AIDS, gender inequality and violence in virtually all parts of the world. All 189 member states of the United Nations have pledged themselves to the realisation of this vision, and the goals are backed up by a practical and achievable plan. What is needed is the will to make it happen. But what can we really do to help? Isn't the problem just too enormous for individual churches, schools and communities to make a difference? What Can One Person Do? seeks to answer that question, offering practical suggestions for real things that we can do in our personal lives that can help to bring the vision of a world without poverty a step closer.
