Bridges out of Poverty



Bridges out of Poverty is a framework designed to educate individuals from middle or upper class on what it means to live in poverty. Through education and awareness, Bridges helps make sustainable communities where everyone can do well.

Bridges training is offered to anyone interested in learning more about the social and economic impact that poverty has on individuals and our community.

Bridges out of Poverty looks at the four causes of poverty:

  • individual behaviour
  • community conditions
  • exploitation
  • political and economic structures

Bridges out of Poverty helps organizations and communities to develop effective strategies to influence policy change. Bridges is an empowering learning opportunity.
