When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty without Hurting the Poor...and Yourself

The Bible is quite clear that God has a special concern for people who are poor, and followers of Jesus Christ must show the same concern. We must act. We must do something. But how we go about working with poor people really matters, for good intentions are not enough. It is entirely possible to hurt poor people -- and ourselves -- in the very process of trying to do good. 

 Based on the author's best-selling book,  When Helping Hurts, this presentation explores the key principles for bringing lasting change to low-income individuals and communities.
