Poverty - Love By Action - Nairobi, Kenya

Poverty

Absolute/Extreme/Abject poverty is a condition characterized
by severe deprivation of basic human needs,
including food, safe drinking water, sanitation facilities,
health, shelter, education and information.

Approximately 1.2 billion people in developing countries live on $1.25 a day or less. While this is a big number it is 700 million fewer than the number living in extreme poverty in 1990 which was 1.9 billion. We believe that extreme poverty can be ended, and we can help do so.

Income is only a partial cause of poverty, the biggest cause is limited access to opportunity due to lack of resources.

Because of poverty there are 121 million Children out of education worldwide.

To change the outlook of poverty globally
we must affect the up and coming generations
by providing access to education.
