A failed employment project for village women in Bangladesh; a Canadian volunteer's craving for crisps; a slice of Black Forest cake at the Dhaka Sheraton - these and other seemingly unrelated events form the beginnings of 'Sally Ann', The Salvation Army's emerging global fair-trade venture. Enhanced with photographs from Norwegian international photographer Knut Bry, "Sally Ann - Poverty to Hope" tells this 'Sally Ann' story, a story about real people. Many of them live in poverty in the slums, in the brothels and in the villages of Bangladesh. In encounter with them, poverty becomes more than statistics. Poverty is personal - given a face by people who challenge us with their own individual stories of suffering and daily struggle. What do Christians do when the world's poor ask for help? The Salvation Army has never shied away from the poor. The movement emerged as a response to the questions of the poor in Victorian England. The answer the Army gave then, is the same answer the Army gives now: a gospel of salvation and practical care. Sally Ann is a gospel-response to the poor. It is about putting bread on people's table. It is about empowerment and self-help.
