Reduce inequality within and among countries

Villagers discussing development plans and procedures of an integrated rural developmet project for their village

As the international community has made significant progress towards lifting people out of poverty, unjust and tremendous income inequality persists. Moreover, inequality is on the rise and large disparities remain in access to health and education services and other assets. Additionally, while income inequality among countries may have been reduced, inequality within countries has risen. There is growing consensus that economic growth is not sufficient to reduce poverty if it is not inclusive and if it does not involve the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental. The voices of developing countries still need to be strengthened in decision-making forums. To reduce inequality, the Amity Foundation puts the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations in the center. After receiving ecumenical resources and support from overseas friends and partners over the last 30 years, the Amity Foundation is gradually able to support less developed countries.
