    From the Founder:

    "Landscapes, an art historian once noted, are often deceptive: they can hide more than they actually show. So it is with attempts to define poverty just as a function of income. True, without income, there is no escape from poverty. But to understand the predicament of the poor and their prospects for overcoming poverty, one must go beyond the metric of “dollar-a-day” existence. Poverty and its deprivations must be seen in all their bareness: lack of education, healthcare, nutrition, clean water, safe sanitation, income, and—ultimately—the passage of premature death. Alongside these deprivations, one must also take cognizance of citizens’ rights that are denied, the opportunities that are bypassed, the entitlements that are wasted, the public services that are not rendered, the liberties that are seized, the public resources that are plundered, the terror of vulnerability that is inflicted, and the sense of dignity that is devoured. Indeed, we must move away from income as the sole measure of poverty and recognize these intangibles stemming from powerlessness and despair as a part of the accounting of the perniciousness of poverty." - Kamal Ahmad, AUW Founder and AUW Support Foundation President & CEO
