A freelancer’s guide to reporting on poverty



Reporting on poverty that centers the voices and knowledge of those experiencing it, requires time, commitment and a deep understanding of its causes. Many people still think poverty and economic hardship are the results of personal failure, a lack of hard work, or a lack of individual motivation to change one’s situation. More nuanced and accurate reporting on poverty can counter such dangerous ideas, stereotypes and myths, while empowering those living in poverty and offering new hope or insight.
