One thousand million people in the world live in poverty. They are denied basic rights such as access to clean water, a home or enough to eat. This work explains why so many people are poor and powerless. It shows what some of them are doing about it, how ordinary people in Britain can support them and what governments could do if enough people demanded change. Oxfam's Campaign aims to prove that the world can abolish poverty.
