I strongly believe that the road to fight poverty is creating quality employment. Poverty probably can be defined as the lack of working opportunities. And those working opportunities can be boosted with the right framework for the individual initiative to prosper. Yet in many societies with high rates of unemployed or underemployed people, individual initiatives are burdened by a legal or administrative framework that make very difficult for the private economy to fully develop to its capacities. Therefore one road to pursue with earnest should be dismanteling all the roadblocks that detter private investment (burocracy, high or complicate tax systems, local regulations-permits, etc). In my point of view this way is much more efficient than creating public employment programs that are generally temporal by nature and limited in their scope.
