Poverties.org is a website dedicated to publicizing social scientific research & providing quality information on economic development, public policy, human rights and discrimination - despite a writing style at times sarcastic and cynical.
There's a lot of news about poverty and more NGOs than ever, but in spite of the huge progresses made there's a lot of noise and sentimentalism out there. So we'll help you make sense of the headlines all while maintaining a minimum amount of perspective, if not humour. We take our work seriously, but we don't take ourselves too seriously.
Writing our articles involves massive research: each of them boils down and analyses 10 to 20 different studies on a specific topic. We cross-analyse existing studies and data on poverty alleviating strategies in order to get an idea of what works and what doesn't.
Poverties.org now attracts over 28,000 visitors per month and offers a variety of articles on the war on poverty around the world. Over 80% of visitors come to the website via natural search results (e.g. Google), thanks to an effective search engine optimization strategy that has boosted the website's online visibility very early on.
With a large scope for growth, Poverties.org aims to become a hub for in-depth, practical information for professionals (NGOs, businesses) and the wider public (students, teachers, citizens) on how to fight poverty. This makes it the perfect place to advertise new NGO & aid campaigns, as the website is now open for sponsorship.
Our end goal is to contribute to the building of
well-functioning, healthy and dynamic societies by facilitating the access to crucial information to the population. We strive to develop people's capabilities around the world so that they can reach their maximum potential, by empowering them with the solutions to their own problems.
Digital Entrepreneur & Cultural Omnivore
I'm a web-entrepreneur, researcher, translator and independent filmmaker (to name but a few). Very much a man of projects.
I'm passionate about economic and social development (human rights, corruption, discrimination), which is why I founded Poverties.org in 2011. I've always been actively involved in issues such as social justice, immigration, inequalities and social exclusion and volunteered in a few NGOs around the globe (when I didn't create one myself). I'm also an intercultural mediator and consultant, and frequently teach about the topic.
I live in the UK but was born in France, my mom's from Brazil and my dad from Tunisia which makes me... a whole bunch of everything.
I've always lived in a multicultural environment, studied Chinese, Korean, Spanish, International Trade & Affairs, then went to Global Media & Communications. I'm always trying to integrate every possible tool at my disposal to innovate and better communicate my messages (websites, video, social media, photography).
Research interests: new technologies, Internet, public policy, globalization, human rights, development challenges in Asia, Africa & Latin America...
Magda Zena Sadurska
Social Scientist & Performing Artist
I was born in Lublin (Poland). As a child I travelled a lot between Europe, Middle East and North Africa and that experience made me be a natural intercultural mediator and negotiator.
I have an MA from the College of Individual Studies in the Humanities at Warsaw University combining Language and Literature studies with Philosophy, Cultural Anthropology and Psychology. I have studied a lot and I must say I firmly believe on the power of education.
From 2006 to 2009 I worked as a lecturer at Warsaw
School of Social Sciences and Humanities teaching psychology of personality,
individual differences and the theory of culture. I got also scholarships to study and teach at the University of Helsinki and the London School of Economics (where I met Dario) where I lead seminars in philosophy for psychologists (2009/2010).
Since 2011 I am a lecturer of psychology of Internet Communication in Collegium
Civitas (Warsaw). In 2012 I founded the Institute of Theano – a company that provides training in communication skills.
Art is an essential part of my life. I have produced a number of short films and performances that were shown in festivals in Poland, Germany, Austria and Spain. At present I am developing a music project.
I also work as an independent researcher and a consultant for media (radio, press, television and telecommunications). In 2010 I worked as a consultant for the World's Bank preparing a report on gender and economic choice. In November 2011 I got my PhD in social psychology from Warsaw School of Social Sciences and Humanities for a thesis on the different forms of communication in situations of conflict.
It's a website dedicated to providing high quality information on economic development and its impact on poverty, discrimination, corruption and human rights.
