Ending poverty isn’t just wishful thinking. We know, because we’ve been helping individuals end poverty in their own lives for more than 70 years. The big news? It’s working. The proportion of the world’s people who are living in extreme poverty (i.e., living on less than $1.90 a day) has been halved in just 15 years.
We know eradicating poverty completely is a huge challenge, but we know that people have the power to do it—either for themselves, or by sharing their time, donating their money, or lending their voice to help end poverty for someone else. Sources: World Bank, United Nations
