How ordinary people, families in extreme poverty, and social institutions become allies to overcome social exclusion.
Twelve case studies that show how very poor people, other members of society, and institutions have succeeded in creating alliances. Their partnerships have led to changes in the institutions, with benefits reaching the larger community.
The book then explores implications for anyone concerned by the persistence of poverty and looking for ways to do something about it.
