End poverty in all its forms everywhere
1 billion people – that’s almost 1 in 7 of us – live in extreme poverty. Ending it will be the greatest global challenge of our generation, but it’s possible.
Being born into poverty means every part of your life is harder. From surviving to your 5th birthday, to getting a good education, having enough nutritious food and clean water to stay healthy, finding work and supporting your own family – the odds are stacked against you.
The good news is we’ve already cut extreme poverty by more than half since 1990. We know we can finish the job by 2030, and create a world where every child gets a fair chance at life, no matter where they are born.
