International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

The following video comes from Trickle Up. Titled "The Test of Poverty." It was produced with support from the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor, which is 'spearheading a global effort to understand how safety nets, livelihoods, and microfinance can be sequenced to create pathways for the poorest to graduate out of extreme poverty.'

Since today is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, I thought this would be an interesting video to share about one of the many solutions that are being sought to eradicate poverty. Tomorrow, I will write a bit about Trickle Up's new study titled And Who Listens to the Poor? that looks at how critical listening and adapting is in lifting people out of extreme poverty.
