The purpose of this handbook is to assist those working directly with people living in extreme poverty to understand the latter’s situation from a human rights perspective, and to suggest actions that can be taken with local governments and other sectors of society to ensure that their rights are respected and protected.

The handbook is intended for all local actors, both those who work for the State such as social workers, community organizers, teachers, or urban planners, as well as those who work for non-governmental organizations, religious institutions, or community associations.
