Ensuring people everywhere have the means to live a dignified life and a place to call home
Where we are now
One in 10 people in developing countries live below the poverty line; in the U.S., it's one in eight.
On the whole, the global economy has improved in the last decade, but the benefits of this upturn are not reaching everyone equally. We have an opportunity to craft a different future—one in which every person is supported and has access to the resources they need to thrive. By understanding the causes of poverty, we can work with people affected by it around the globe to co-develop pathways to stability and economic equity.
