Transforming lives in poverty

Around 1 billion people are living in extreme poverty. This means that millions of families don't have the things they need to live safely and in good health.

We think everybody should have enough to eat and drink. We think grown-ups should be able to earn money to support their families. And we think children should be able to learn. That's why we have been working with the world's poorest people for more than 70 years, in 90 different countries. We won't stop until poverty has ended for good.

  • £10 could buy chickens (otherwise known as egg factories) for a hungry family.
  • £27 could help train a teacher so that many more children can be educated.

Eat, drink, earn, learn

In our world, around 1 billion people are living in extreme poverty. This means that millions of families don't have the things they need to live safely and in good health.
