Help M-POWER Ministries spread the word that poverty is not just about money.
In fact, no one resource will help someone get out of poverty. Poverty includes a lack of sufficient financial resources, but it is so much more. Poverty is the opposite of wholeness.
Wholeness requires resources like education, physical and mental health, emotional health, finances, a support system, healthy relationships, role models and more.
We define poverty as significant deficits in three or more of these vital resources. When these deficits last into a second generation, we call this generational poverty. Generational poverty creates a poverty culture.
M-POWER Ministries provides opportunities for people to break the cycle of poverty through education and health services.
When you wear an M-POWER “What is Poverty?” t-shirt you are helping us share the truth about the obstacles that affect those we serve.
