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, public policy, globalization, human rights, development challenges in Asia, Africa & Latin America...
