ABOUT THE BOOK
This is a story about a question we never thought to ask― Who owns poverty?― and about an unexpected answer that challenges everything we thought we knew about what poverty is, and what we can do about it.
This book is for the governments, development organizations and changemakers who are frustrated with simply trying to reduce poverty, or alleviate its effects―and our lack of progress in doing either.
This is a book that celebrates the power of audacious questions and considers what happens when we put poverty back into the hands of the real experts: families living in poverty.
