and the communities in which they live, rather than benefiting the multinational companies of the rich, industrialised North.

WDM campaigns to tackle the root causes of poverty. With our partners
around the world, we win positive change for the worldвЂ™s poorest people.
We believe that charity is not enough. We lobby governments and
companies to change the policies that keep people poor.
