Mission Statement

Our vision is much like yours: to live in a world without extreme poverty.

We’re inspired by the incredible progress that has been made: halving the percentage of people who live in extreme poverty. But an estimated 1.4 billion people still live in extreme poverty, with the equivalent of just US$1.25 a day for all their needs. These mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters face a lack of opportunity and choice that traps them in a cycle of extreme poverty.

We know that this injustice can be ended within a generation. So we’re working to make it happen - by increasing the number and effectiveness of people taking action to end extreme poverty, and building a global movement for systemic change.

Description

The Global Poverty Project utilises the power of education, communications, advocacy, campaigning and the media to advance the movement to end extreme poverty.

We know extreme poverty is a complex issue, and that it can’t be eradicated overnight, or by one person. That’s why we’re building a global movement for change: focused on making a difference now, and changing the systems and policies that keep people in poverty.

We do this in two ways:

Campaigning for government, business and consumer action that will create important systemic change for the world’s extreme poor, and

Building a movement that engages and educates people, and supports them to take simple but effective individual actions for change.
