This book is comprised of a collection of essays on extreme poverty.
It focuses on what it means to live in extreme poverty, how to reach
the very poor through programs and interventions, and how to make
private and public institutions more responsive to their needs. This
book also analyzes the relationship between extreme poverty and human
rights. It places emphasis on the contribution made by the
International Movement ATD Fourth World, and its founder, Joseph
Wresinski, to the understanding of the very poor and what is required
to fight extreme poverty.
