The End of Extreme Poverty #By2030

Avril 15, 2014 by

The last two decades have been the most successful in history in the fight against poverty: the share of people living in extreme poverty – or on less than US$1.25 per day – has been cut in half worldwide, from 43% in 1990 to less than 20% today. However, more than one billion people still live in extreme poverty day in and day out. We are the generation that can see the end of extreme poverty. It can happen in our lifetimes. Yet, the last part will be the hardest. Ending extreme poverty in our lifetimes is a difficult but achievable goal.  It requires strong and on-going commitment.

Do you believe in a world without extreme poverty? A world in which leaders refuse to allow poverty to affect the lives of the people in their districts, states and countries?

Join the movement! Sign the Zero Poverty petition below to join the movement committed to bringing poverty to ZERO by 2030. 

The Hunger Project is a proud partner of Zero Poverty 2030, a global campaign that urges citizens from all countries to sign and share a petition calling on governments to commit to providing full support toward ending extreme poverty #By2030. The campaign is run by Global Citizen, an initiative of the Global Poverty Project.

Executive Vice President John Conrood represented The Hunger Project at the launch of the Zero Poverty campaign on April 10 during the annual Spring Meetings of the World Bank. Visit The Hunger Project’s Flickr for photos from the launch.

Take Action!
