Why One Day's Wages?
According to UNICEF, approximately 3 billion people live on less than US $2/day and 1.4 billion people live on less than US $1.25/day - the definition of those living in extreme poverty. In the midst of these staggering statistics, what can one person do? What can a person's "one day's wages" do in the face of such staggering statistics?
While we might not be able to save the world, we can absolutely make a difference. We can help change the world and in turn, be changed. While the issues are complex, experts and global organizations are in agreement: We have the capacity to end extreme global poverty.
While compassion is an important aspect of our humanity, ODW's goals are not merely to distribute funds, but rather, to partner with organizations already working to allow people to lift themselves out of poverty.
