Bridges Out of Poverty, Getting Ahead In A Just Getting By World & The R Rules
What is the purpose of Bridges Out Of Poverty:
If you didn't grow up in poverty,
you may be totally unaware of the "hidden rules" that govern many
aspects of life for the poor. People in poverty are often in
survival mode, where the future holds no promise and support
systems taken for granted in middle class and wealth are
If your business, agency or organization works with people from poverty or you care about being an agent of change in finding solutions to poverty, then only a deeper understanding of the challenges of the under-resourced-and strengths-will help you "partner" with them to create opportunities for success.
In the Bridges Out of Poverty context, poverty is defined "as the extent to which an individual does without resources". Therefore, if people in poverty are able to connect to the necessary resources, they are likely to become more self-sufficient and self-sustaining.
Looking at poverty through the lens of economic class versus social class allows one to do away with pre-conceived and judgmental opinions of people in poverty.
An individual brings with them their own "hidden rules of class" in which they were raised. These "hidden rules" dictate an individual's pattern of thought, social interaction and cognitive strategies. Understanding other classes' hidden rules can help close the communication and relational gap between individuals from different economic classes.
Learning how to build human capacity rather than just institutional maintenance is the key to implementing more effective solutions to poverty. However, any discussion or planning should only take place when all three "Fred's" are at the table-the Fred from Poverty, the Fred from Middle Class and the Fred from Wealth.
