World Development Movement Trust

The World Development Movement is dedicated to research, education and awareness-raising activities on the root causes of poverty.

Our mission is to eradicate poverty and achieve economic justice - the right of poor communities to determine their own path out of poverty. Our model of change is based on increasing individuals’ awareness and understanding of the causes of poverty and pushing for government policies that put people before profits.

We want to see a world where everyone has clean water, a balanced diet, shelter, healthcare and education. We research and promote positive alternatives and work alongside people in the developing world who are standing up to injustice.
