Overview

The numbers of Africans living in absolute poverty continues to increase. Through bolder and more innovative approaches, the poor can be helped, at very reasonable cost, to break out of poverty. We use the experience from one of the poorest countries on the continent, Malawi, to illustrate both the challenges that poverty creates, and the opportunities for change that exist. We develop a model easily replicable at modest cost to lift people quickly out of poverty, with sustainable benefits.
