Bolangir to Hyderabad – Politics of Poverty

This is a story of tough, ordinary people surviving almost unendurable lives. It is about those who strive to help them and those who strive to do harm. It is a story written and told to me by many people; an approximate account of how change in the real world really happens.

It is also a story of an organisation learning to understand and act on problems of poverty through the lens of human rights. It asks what is being done to people which takes away their freedom to be full human beings and drives them into poverty.
