THE CAUSE

Poverty compounds mankind’s worst dilemmas.

Eradicating it would mean an end to much of the world’s hunger, childhood mortality, violence, social injustice and ecological destruction. 

Globally, 734 million people live in extreme poverty with less than $1.90 a day. Economic development at the individual, community and country levels is critical to driving true and lasting change.


THE FACTS

Children are disproportionately affected by poverty - they comprise half of those living in extreme poverty.

Women are more likely to live in poverty and earn 20 percent less than men globally. 

While global poverty has decreased in recent years, it continues to rise in 30 countries.

To end poverty by 2030, 1.5 people need to escape poverty every second.
