Allison Alley recently sat down with the Ending Poverty Together Podcast to talk about the impact of COVID-19 on children living in poverty and what Compassion has done to address the crisis.
One year after the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, Allison joins hosts Shelaine Strom and Eric Strom to discuss what child development and sponsorship look like in the midst of a global shutdown and why the global Church is perfectly suited to provide life-changing support to families around the world.
The interview also explores:
- What poverty is.
- How Compassion uniquely addresses poverty through child sponsorship.
- Key moments in Allison’s life that opened her eyes to the global nature of poverty.
- Helpful books and other resources that unpack the realities of poverty and how to address it.
- How families can learn and grow together to understand and engage child development in meaningful ways.
