Terrible Talk is owned and operated by a registered New Zealand Charity (Terrible New Zealand) and operated for the exclusive benefit of New Zealand Charities along with the general public.
It also comprises one of the partners of Terrible Consolidated and international non-profit, working towards a world without poverty.
The purpose is to help create lasting solutions to effective change by using business as a force for good, creating global movements. Empowering people to create the future that is secure, just, and free from poverty.
Everyone has a right to realise their potential, and to live free of poverty in a secure and more equitable world. Terrible Talk believes that such a world is possible and that its efforts can facilitate it's creation.
People have a right to life and security; to a sustainable livelihood; to be heard; to have an identity; and to have access to basic social services. In poverty people have little or none of these and very little opportunity for development.
Poverty is rooted in inequality, and the poor have little resilience in the face of natural disasters, human violence, oppression and environmental damage.
Women and girls are often the most oppressed by poverty; their needs and rights must be central to eliminating it.
Global co-operation and a cohesive strategy is necessary to meet the challenges of this century - climate change, famines, increasing food prices, humanitarian crises, energy limitations, urbanisation, and declining natural resources.
Governments should be accountable to their people, and all society’s institutions –corporations, organisations and groups including us – should be accountable for the impact of their actions.
As a charity Terrible Talkare transparent in all our dealings and welcome input and constructive criticism. We're secular, open-minded and pluralistic. We welcome all beliefs that advance human rights.
