With the Global Citizen, an initiative of the Global Poverty Project, we dream of a world without extreme poverty. More than dream, this could become our reality. By 2030. It’s a difficult, but achievable goal. Progress has already been made. Still, more than 1 billion people live on under $1.25 a day for everything.
Leaders in the fight against extreme poverty believe that by working together, we can see an end to extreme poverty by 2030. Key to this is every country prioritizing the goal of poverty eradication now. This is where everybody comes in. Zero Poverty 2030 is a campaign that is calling on every country to commit to support all efforts to end extreme poverty by 2030.
A petition will be presented to world leaders in April 2015. Hundreds of thousands of voices have to come together around the world for this message to be heard.
Ending extreme poverty in our lifetimes is a difficult but achievable goal. Now is the time to take action!
