actions taken in 2017 to help end extreme poverty
Poverty isn’t the only issue. Its the cause of many others. Maternal mortality (45% globally); access to education (114 million young people lack basic reading and writing skills); child Labour (11% of the world’s children are trapped in work) The list goes on.
The devastating reality of extreme poverty becomes clear when you begin to understand the facts. But do enough of us really know about the extent of poverty, or the steps we can take to end it?
Become a Global Citizen today and start to learn about, and take action on the world’s biggest challenges. By doing your part in the fight to end poverty, you’ll be rewarded with points that can be used to win tickets for some of the best concerts, shows and events in the world.
Actions are simple - join a conversation on twitter to stop famine in its tracks, encourage girls to keep going #LikeAGirl, or sign a petition urging leaders to protect and support refugees everywhere.
Then celebrate your hard work – and the end of extreme poverty.
