How do we help the poor?

We sat in at a presentation this afternoon by a group from this NGO that help people in poor countries to set up businesses by giving them training and help them network with others in the country and the region. The idea is that it is no good just giving aid. We must empower them to make a living for themselves so that the cycle of poverty can be broken.As for funds, the organization put them in touch with financial institutions or other NGOs that could provide micro-loans or credit.
