It’s becoming increasingly apparent that a country simply can’t flourish without all of its citizens having sufficient access to essential rights and resources. Those who are in extreme poverty often do not have access to one or more of these. Former UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, deemed this to be “a threat to human security”.


So what can we do about this? Different.org partners with a number of NGOs that provide crucial services to vulnerable members of society to ensure that they have the best chance of success in life.
