Building an #EndPovertyMosaic – Together

© World Bank


Every October, the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund (IMF) come together for our joint Annual Meetings. There, thousands of delegates from around the globe convene to discuss the world’s most pressing challenges  in the quest to End Poverty.

These discussions, covering dozens of sectors in every region of the world, offer many innovative solutions that affect millions – if not billions – of people globally. Looking back, all the small gains from many initiatives from 1990 to 2013 led to a reduction of global extreme poverty of more than one billion people.

And just like those initiatives came together to form a bigger picture, we are calling on YOU to help us create a bigger picture of our own throughout the Annual Meetings , and leading up to End Poverty Day on October 17.

Every person deserves a fair chance in life and your photo can make a difference  by raising awareness on ending poverty. So, from October 11 – 13, we’ll be creating an interactive mosaic  built entirely of photos submitted by you and attendees of the Annual Meetings.

With the 25th anniversary of End Poverty Day falling just days after the meetings, the opportunity to create some real momentum around the goal to end extreme poverty – one of the World Bank Group’s twin goals, and SDG #1 – is palpable. Help us create a beautiful monument to hope, inspire leaders to stay committed, and build momentum to 2030 .

How does it work?

For three days, we’ll be collecting and assembling photos posted on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #EndPovertyMosaic on a giant billboard in the Atrium of our Washington DC headquarters.

Help us create the final 15-foot by 5-foot art installation one square at a time: Submit a photo of you to tell the world that we can be the generation that ends poverty in our lifetime .

And, you can follow along even if you aren’t at the Annual Meetings. Check out the interactive feed of submissions at www.worldbank.org/endpoverty to see your photos along with the thousands of others submitted.

Contribute as many times as you’d like, and share this blog post to encourage others to participate.

<p>I encourage everyone with access to farming to embrace farming be it subsistence or commercial because without proper and guided food security, our money and efforts are in vain. I love farming and so I have adequate food security in my home even without a formaljob. What are you waiting for? Together we can END POVERTY right from grass roots. </p>
<p>Be blessed.</p>

Je tiens à féliciter le Groupe de la Banque Mondiale pour ses nombreuses initiatives en faveur de la lutte contre l’extrême pauvreté dans le monde. Pour notre part, nous estimons que l'Economie Sociale et Solidaire, par une stratégie qui lui est propre, apportera un appui substantiel à ces initiatives qui demeurent très nobles.

Merci pour des initiatives louables de lutter contre la pauvrete dans le monde mais trouver une solution à ce problème nécessite l'implication de plusieurs secteurs.

La non redistribucion des richesses à l'intérieur d'une nation provoque automatique un groupe plus pauvre d'où un deséquilibre économique et social qu'il faut combattre dans le monde.
