Poverty & Social Justice

Poverty & Social Justice

IFFFAP will implement a strategy to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice. Ending world hunger and poverty requires more than compassion and more than sustainable development. It also requires justice.

Skills and Work

We offer accessible, affordable and relevant skills training and match practical training with placements in industry to help people succeed.

Education Development Programme

Equipped with knowledge and confidence, kids grow up to lead healthier lives. Achieves sustainable impact. Promotes research-based interventions. Designs effective digital technology. Builds scalable solutions.

Human Disability Development & Disability Equalities

IFFFAP creates media to promote empathy and empowerment for the disability community. Our ultimate goal is to help create a more inclusive society where those with physical and intellectual challenges are treated with respect, and their needs are understood and accommodated.

Health Development Initiative – Striving for a Healthy Society

IFFFAP works to increase vulnerable households’ access to healthcare and services. We strengthen local institutions to provide better care that prevents and treats illness while mobilizing communities to take integrated approaches that address economic, social and infrastructure development.

Disaster Relief & Humanitarian Development

Natural disasters, poverty, disease, and civil war impact millions around the world. In an emergency, IFFFAP provides quality medical aid, disaster relief and recovery.

Ending world hunger and poverty requires more than compassion and more than sustainable development. It also requires justice.

From overwhelming debt to the repression of women to wars and conflict, issues of social justice are directly linked to poverty and hunger. Even complications related to natural disasters like famine often have injustice hidden below the surface, such as land monopoly or unjust farming practices.

Poverty and hunger are complex issues that defy a single, simple solution. Families or individuals of any age can become poor or homeless, temporarily or permanently, for a variety of reasons. However, each person who finds themselves homeless or stuck in poverty is a unique individual—a child of God whom we are called to love as a brother or sister, to care well for, showing mercy and compassion.

How do we end hunger? We work together to address immediate needs but also to dismantle the root causes of global poverty. Work through the links below to learn more, to reflect, and to take specific actions that can help people around the world who are poor and hungry.

WE REDUCE POVERTY

IFFFAP gathers middle-income and high-income volunteers to support families in poverty. Surrounded by people who have landed jobs, negotiated a lease, or managed credit card debt, people in crisis are more equipped to achieve long-term financial stability.

WE CHANGE COMMUNITIES

While participants are navigating their way out of poverty, their successes and challenges are shared with local community leaders. The barriers that keep people in poverty are identified, discussed, and often resolved.

WE HAVE A MODEL THAT WORKS

Participants who complete the program achieve a 39% increase in income after six months and a 78% increase in income after 18 months. Participants continue to increase their income–even after the 18-month period.
