[Autom. eng. transl.] How to learn about poverty with poor families? How to look for solutions that are not just "emergency"? The volume talks about poor parents and children who express positive and generative potential while receiving help. The fight against poverty is possible not only by asking what is needed and by whom, but what helps and how. It is not a problem of quantity of resources but of combination of skills, professional and non-professional, to better finalize the aid available. The performanceism demeans the talents, does not enhance them and can humiliate the people who daily fight against poverty. The dignity of every person, even if poor, is a fundamental human value to be recognized and valued. Needing does not mean being weaker and less capable. It means being called to face very difficult situations, on the verge of survival, and to be able to get out. It is a message from the title «I don't give up». It is the cry of freedom and hope that comes from the poor.
