Ending Extreme poverty in 2030
The number of people living in extreme poverty – $1.25 per person per day — was cut in half from 1990 to 2010. Although some have attributed this success largely to rapid economic growth in some of the world’s largest countries, there are thousands of organizations around the world that have been working to empower the poorest people across the globe through education, health care, relief, and development.
About 800 million people across the globe still struggle with severely low incomes, and some of these organizations are coming together with the UN, the World Bank, and government aid agencies to call for the eradication of extreme poverty by 2030. We intend to join with other supporting organizations to add our voices and resources to achieve this goal.
