People changing people

"IT'S people that change people, not concepts; and this was real purpose of what we have been doing. 

"Of course the problem is not poverty, it's wealth. As long as we live in, and even applaud, a culture in which money is the bottom line, the top line and the front line, there will always be people having to live below the poverty line.

"The Poverty Truth Commission is teaching us a new way to listen, and relate to one another, and make critical decisions; and its legacy will change how we think."

David Lunan, Poverty Truth Commissioner and former Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.
