That Poverty Project


One of the legacies of That Poverty Project will be the compilation of one of the
most extensive internet based poverty libraries in the world.

Starting in June 2012, the library will be fully populated and formatted with
additional links regarding poverty being added almost daily. 

In the interim, hopefully the following partial list of links will be helpful re . . .
