KRITZINGER, Dons. Poverty relief or poverty eradication?. Acta theol. [online]. 2012, vol.32, suppl.16, pp.17-34. ISSN 2309-9089.

The author challenges the reader to make two mindshifts: from a focus on poverty relief to an emphasis on poverty eradication; and from viewing the poor as the objects of poverty alleviation to accepting them as the subjects of poverty eradication. The case is argued and a practical approach towards poverty eradication is proposed.

Keywords : Poverty relief; Poverty eradication; Community.
