Our vision is a world without extreme poverty by 2030. The Global Poverty Project's mission is to grow the number and effectiveness of Global Citizens to achieve the public, business and political commitment and action to end extreme poverty by 2030.
We are inspired by the incredible progress achieved by the global community in halving the percentage of people living in extreme poverty in the last 30 years. We know that the injustice of living on less than US$1.25 a day can be ended by 2030.
We believe that when an organized, critical mass of individuals in society aspire to the values of Global Citizen, and when they are organized and equipped to take meaningful action, we can change the policies and practices that contribute to keeping people in 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. The world’s extreme poor are working hard to fight poverty themselves, with our role being to mobilize citizens to take powerful actions for lasting change. To this end, since launching in 2008 we have:
- Campaigned to change the systems that keep people trapped in extreme poverty through Global Citizen, our online platform and its many related events. We have successfully campaigned for new financial commitments including $900 million for the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, and $600m for the Global Partnership for Education.
- Put extreme poverty on the map with the 2012, 2013, and 2014 Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, New York, where each year 50,000 people came together to celebrate the progress that has been made in the fight against extreme poverty, and learn how they can continue taking action. More than 35 policy and financial commitments totaling $1.3b have been made from the stage.
- Developed 1.4 Billion Reasons – a ground breaking multimedia presentation that explains the issues that contribute to extreme poverty, and what we can do about them, speaking to more than 200,000 people on three continents about the simple actions they can take to help tackle extreme poverty.
- Launched the international advocacy and fundraising campaign Live Below the Line – engaging 70,000 people with the lack of choice inherent in extreme poverty, and raising $14 million for anti-poverty initiatives.
