Business against Poverty is a business enterprise that drives profitable, ethical and sustainable growth for the benefit of its members and society.

Its funds drive the humanitarian work of the charity People Against Poverty.

Triangle Design has worked on the design and marketing for both the Educating 80 and Project 40 initiatives, and provided ongoing sponsorship of an impoverished family, including sponsoring the erection of a sanctuary home in which to home them.

The business has committed to giving one percent of its turnover to helping people in need, and Business Against Poverty receives 25 percent of this sum.

"Through their work we see a real insight into the effectiveness of our contribution. This is good for our whole team – they actually see the real faces of the people they are helping and can track their progress," said manager Jules English.

"Jim and I have always wanted to use our influence through our business to help others in less fortunate position.

"All of us at Triangle are so fortunate to live and work here in the UK and although we all have our own challenges at times – it is nothing to what I witnessed when I went out to Romania to see the People Against Poverty projects."
