WORLD has reported on Christian poverty-fighting groups since the magazine began in 1986, but our coverage increased when the effective compassion movement began in 1995 and increased once more in 2006 when we began presenting the Hope Award for Effective Compassion. Our goal is to honor a few of the self-sacrificing Christian helpers in neighborhoods throughout the United States and to profile groups that have built replicable programs—we hope others will go and do likewise.
