Together, we can end extreme poverty in 15 years

Ready for some amazing news? The latest stats show that the number of people living in extreme poverty halved in just 15 years. Together, we can keep that incredible progress going - and eradicate extreme poverty by 2030.

Every time you donate to Oxfam, or buy an Oxfam Unwrapped gift, or sign one of our petitions, you're helping more and more people to leave poverty behind.

But progress alone isn't enough. One billion people still live in poverty. That's one billion people too many.

One day we won't live with poverty

Earlier this year, with extreme poverty falling, the UN set a series of goals designed to create a sustainable future for everyone. They cover a lot of what we're already working on with your support.Momentum is building. Governments are listening.

Together with you, we really can help to create a future free from extreme poverty. So we'll continue our efforts on the big issues - from inequality, which you've helped to push up the agenda with our Even It Up campaign, to climate change and hunger.
