Why I Care about Ending Poverty
People are afraid of poverty, so they distance themselves from it. When we come across somebody that we can label as a victim we create a 'them and us' mindset. In order to pretend that we have some control over our own personal destiny we decide that it was the victims own fault. A moments reflection corrects this distortion, however reflection is an uncomfortable skill that many avoid practicing. My personal goal as a Community Leader for Oaktree is to change this mindset that people have and help society realise that if we all put our hands together we can end extreme poverty.
