The numbers are staggering:

  • 25,000 children under the age of 5 die each day due to poverty-related causes.

  • Unsafe water and lack of sanitation cause 80% of sickness, killing more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

  • Nearly 780 million people do not have access to clean water.

  • Nearly 1 billion people entered the 21st  century unable to read a book or sign their names.

The good news is there are already individuals and organizations working to alleviate extreme poverty. We're not reinventing the wheel, but rather collaborating and partnering with others. We are joining in the fight!
