Change. that will provide you with the resources to equip you and faith leaders, faith communities and organisations with the relevant knowledge and skills needed to address child poverty effectively.
This Resource Guide will be a tool that will help faith communities to mobilise faith–inspired resources to end child poverty, empower their constituencies to take action, build networks and coalitions with like-minded actors around the world and hold policy makers accountable to ending poverty in general and especially, ending child poverty.
This guide provides a general overview of the nature and scope of child poverty that you can use for informational and educational purposes.
