What Schools Are Saying About PovertyCure:

“PovertyCure has provided the sound thinking that animates head, heart, and hands in a faithful, God-honoring manner while affirming the dignity of others and humanizing the ‘orphan, widow, and alien.’  The videos have engendered meaningful reflection and dialogue among the students. Moreover, they have successfully motivated the responsible application of the principles they so compellingly lay out.”

-    Dr. Kevin J. Brown, Associate Professor of Business; Associate Dean, Howard Dayton School of Business, Asbury University

“Many students have expressed that they did not know that their act of kindness, though with good intention, could actually hurt the economies and people whom they were to help.  The PovertyCure series is eye opening for the students who are beginning to ask themselves tougher and deeper questions.”

-    Caleb Chen, Dean & Professor of Business, Spring Arbor University
