Systemic Change

A key facet of the Society’s work is to end poverty through long-lasting systemic change. Systemic change goes beyond addressing the immediate needs of poverty; instead, it is about partnering with the poor to identify the root causes of their poverty and remove the barriers that keep people impoverished.

“The money or assistance in-kind that we give to those who are poor will not last long. We must aspire to a more complete and longer lasting benefit: study their abilities…and help them get work to help them out of their difficulties.”

– Blessed Rosalie Rendu
