Mission statement

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. Poverties.org is a humanist, nonpartisan website that looks for facts and analysis to counterbalance many views about poverty that are merely grounded in beliefs and biased observations.

There's a lot of news (noise?) about poverty and more NGOs out there than ever, but in spite of the huge progress made there's still a ton of preconceived ideas and pointless sentimentalism out there. So I want to do my best to help you make sense of the headlines all while maintaining a minimum amount of perspective, if not humour. I take this work very seriously, but I won't take myself seriously. No one should.

About the website

Poverties.org now attracts over 100,000 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 (I work as a digital strategist so... that came in handy!).

Writing these articles involves a massive amount of research: each of them boils down and analyses 10 to 20 different studies on a specific topic. I cross-analyse existing studies and data on poverty alleviating strategies, discrimination, corruption, etc, in order to get an idea of what works and what doesn't.

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 and how to better understand it. If you are interested in sponsorship or direct advertising, please use the contact form below.

The 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.

"Ending poverty isn't a gesture of charity, it's an act of justice"
Nelson Mandela

Who's behind it?

Dario Berrebi - Researcher & Web Entrepreneur


I'm a digital strategist, researcher, translator and independent filmmaker. Very much a man of projects.

I'm passionate about economic and social development, 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.

I live in the UK but was born in France, my mom's from Brazil and my dad from Tunisia which makes me... a bit of everything.

I've always lived in a multicultural environment, studied Chinese, Korean, International Trade, 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).

Before contacting me

Bear in mind that, unfortunately, I cannot help you with:

  • School/university homework or paper;
  • Providing a list of NGOs (Google already provides everything and more!);
  • Selling me any rubbish SEO services. I work in digital strategy so this usually shows you haven't read the website correctly. Please stop spamming the web.
