PU 045: Six Steps to End Poverty (Laying the Foundation #4)

Why do people remain poor?

This episode addresses six obstacles to positive change for people living in poverty. When all six of these obstacles are lifted, the change process can occur.

  1. Lack of education
  2. Lack of resources
  3. Human sinfulness
  4. Satanic deception
  5. Lack of supportive people
  6. Presence of opposition

When I explained this lesson to my 5- and 6-year-old daughters, here’s the language they understood for describing the six obstacles.

  1. No school
  2. No money
  3. Sin
  4. Satan
  5. Nobody helping
  6. Mean people

Change for Life is a new way to bring hope to those suffering from the AIDS crisis, one of the most severe health problems the world has ever faced.

When you get involved with Change for Life, Food for the Hungry will provide your church, Sunday School class, workplace or other group with small containers to collect spare coins for six weeks. As the containers fill up, the accumulation of pocket change will fund the programs that Kim discussed on today’s episode. Get started here.
