Poverty Inc. Documentary and Discussion
Mar 19, 2019

Have you ever wondered whether or not your charitable donations are truly making a difference?  Mark your calendars! We hope you will join us, The Dover Church and St. Dunstan ‘s Episcopal Church, on Tuesday, April 2nd at 7 pm for a viewing of the documentary, Poverty, Inc.  

Poverty Inc. is a documentary about how the West has positioned itself as the protagonist of the development narrative. But the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and developing world leaders have become increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing on perspectives gathered from over 150 interviews shot over 4 years in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. explores the hidden side of doing good.
