What are the root causes of poverty?
What are appropriate solutions to eradicate poverty?
Is there a wrong way to help others?
If you ever ask yourself these or other questions, Food for the Hungry's Ending Poverty Boot Camp will provide the challenging and supportive environment for you to explore your personal response to the poverty crisis.
An Ending Poverty Boot Camp provides an interactive learning environment, stories, facts and development experience from the field, an understanding of the origins of poverty, a realization that there is a recommended solution to poverty, and an opportunity to develop a healthy personal response to issues of poverty.
Join thousands of Canadians who've enjoyed the workshop's interactive content, videos, and discussion.
"Boot Camp re-focused my thinking about who the poor are. Our culture tends to paint the poor as lazy, not smart, needing a hand out, etc when in fact we need to lift our eyes to see them as worthy of respect and assistance, capable of systemic change given the right opportunities." - Langley Boot Camp, 2012
"I loved it - definitely exceeded my expectations! I really think everyone who is involved in advocacy needs to take this." - Vernon Boot Camp, 2011
