At Poverty Resolutions, we believe that education is empowerment. As such, a main focus of our mission is to spread education and awareness of global poverty among Americans. We strive to provide superior and relevant educational material to institutions in order to help youth gain an understanding of how they can be effective ambassadors for the people of Haiti and other developing countries. We do not see knowledge as an end in itself, but rather hope to inspire young people to act.
While we channel our funds to alleviate poverty in Haiti, we are committed to the worldwide fight against poverty and want to expose the struggles and obstacles that the impoverished face in modern society. In educating others about the evils of poverty, and the ways in which those evils can be combated, we hope to engage the American population in our mission to resolve poverty worldwide.
Poverty Resolutions has developed a variety of educational presentations and programs intended to illustrate the harsh realities of global poverty. We have created targeted materials based on age level that spread awareness about both the challenges facing the developing world as well as Haitian culture:
Our presentations are not limited to the scholastic community. If you have a youth group, community group, religious group, or other organization and are interested in learning about global poverty, please contact us. We will work with you to bring an appropriate presentation to your group.

Although we can't bring our programming to every school across the country, we want our message to be shared with as many people as possible. Therefore, as part of our Poverty Week initiative, we have compiled an online portfolio of materials that can be used to examine the challenges of Haitian and global poverty. Many of our presenting materials, including accompanying videos and activities for student engagement, have been organized by age level and incorporated into various suggested lesson plans.
