A phenomenal discourse on why poverty exists when there is so much wealth in the world.
No one gets to choose the family circumstances into which she or he is born; it’s like the flip of a coin. And although the total wealth of the world has never been greater, reliable access to basic resources is denied to the ballooning ranks of the world’s poor. Films found here examine the hardships faced by people living in poverty, including homelessness, the lack of sanitation and clean water, exploitation by employers and dangerous working conditions. They also highlight creative strategies for fighting poverty, such as microenterprise and the development of cooperative industries. Watch these films and learn how we can improve outcomes for those who lose the coin toss.
