There is more to progress than economic growth. Genuine progress must be complete. No one can be left out. No part of anyone can be left out.

“..to be authentic, it must be well rounded: it must foster the development of each man and of the whole man,” Pope Paul VI.

 What we hold dear is the idea that the livelihoods of vulnerable people can and should be supported in ways that restore their dignity as social and conomic actors as opposed to charity recipients.
