... Extreme poverty has halved in the last 15 years. ?
It’s true. More than one billion people escaped extreme poverty between 1990 and 2015 – meaning they no longer lived on less than $1.90 a day. That’s incredible. All those people, waking up this morning feeling more positive than they did just a few years ago. You’re at the heart of that change, and now we’re on the brink of history. Together, we can end extreme poverty by 2030.
