Here’s a practical way to help end global poverty: join the efforts of the Global Poverty Project. No joke! Its vision is: “a world without extreme poverty within a generation. Our mission is to increase the number and effectiveness of people taking action to end extreme poverty. The Global Poverty Project is an educational and campaigning organisation that activates citizens to be a part of the global movement to end extreme poverty.”

Global Poverty Project’s stated aims are to motivate you to:

  • Be a global citizen: fight extreme poverty anytime, anywhere!
  • Get your university, school or workplace involved
  • Volunteer: be a passionate change maker
  • Help end polio: join the campaign to eradicate a debilitating disease that pulls people further into poverty

How? “The Global Poverty Project’s world-class presentation, 1.4 Billion Reasons, is designed to catalyse the movement to end extreme poverty. It is currently traveling the world – with presenters in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
