Poverty, Inc.


Poverty, Inc.

Fighting poverty is a big business, but who profits the most?

Winner of 30 film festival honors, 11 awards and counting, this thought-provoking film is making waves!

The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry–the business of doing good has never been better. Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore. From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem? Check out their website for a viewing near you, or schedule one in your town/ university/ local health food store/ homeschool group. This film will change the way you view poverty and the business of doing good. Especially appropriate for this time of year when we tend to think of the less fortunate and hope to help them.

Highly recommended!
