Global Poverty Project Catalysing the movement to end extreme poverty

The challenges of poverty, hunger and disease loom large in the lives of hundreds of millions, exacerbated by rising fuel and food prices, triggering inflation that hurts those in extreme poverty the most. The astonishing and continued growth of China and India mask the reality that the world’s poorest billion people – those living on less than one dollar a day – remain on the edge of existence. The world has fallen significantly behind our goal of halving extreme poverty by 2015, yet the world’s attention and cameras have moved away from the issue.

Join a movement of global citizens working for a world where no one is left behind.
