Creating the Pathways from Poverty to Prosperity

Claude Moraes Says...

Prosperity is...

"I am an immigrant from India to the UK and for me prosperity has always meant a sense of belonging, and freedom. Freedom in this sense means the freedom not to have to worry about where the next meal will come from and having an income to make choices. Personal prosperity also means living in a society which puts some value on a safety net for the most vulnerable and equality of opportunity for all. To me no society scarred by deep institutional racial or caste discrimination can ever truly be prosperous until it deals with it. And as a late father prosperity is having the energy to play with my 6 year old son."
