Op-Ed campaign

We want to sensitise more people about the challenges and opportunities of working with the extreme poor. We request all those who work with the extreme poor to write opinion editorials that can stimulate discussion and generate support among stakeholders. If you would like to contribute to the campaign, please write to info@shiree.org for more information. We are grateful to the authors who have submitted thought-provoking pieces, the readers who have responded positively, and news media, for supporting this initiative.

Please read the following op-eds published by different newspapers that Shiree team and other people contributed in the efforts. You can also read the op-eds categorized under different challenges the extreme poor people face in the pdf document linked here Eradicate extreme poverty op-ed campaign.
