Impact of One Day's Wages
In response to the overwhelming statistics about extreme global poverty, we often have more questions than answers:
- What can one person do?
- What is the impact of one day's wages?
- Can I really make a difference?
The answers are an emphatic "Yes."
Yes, one person can make a difference. Imagine when many individuals work together to change the world - and be changed in that process. We not only have much to give but we actually have much to receive and learn.
Yes, a person's one day's wages can make a difference. An average working person's daily wage is approximately 0.4% of their annual salary. Consider the impact we can make for another person, a family, a village, or an organization that is on the ground working to uplift people out of poverty:
- Malaria Net: $10
- Child's Tuition for Education: $45
- Teacher's Salary in jungles in Burma: $60/year
- Training & Sewing Machine for one woman: $100
- Machine Drilled Well for a Village: $1400
