One voice can make a difference. Many can change the world.

From civil rights in America to the global fight against AIDS, history has shown that when people come together in pursuit of a goal, they can overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.

We’re urging everyone to come together to help end extreme poverty by 2030.

The World Bank Group, along with other like-minded organizations and individuals, is part of a global movement to change the lives of millions of people who survive on less than $1.25 a day.

Help us do it. Take on a challenge that can help end extreme poverty – whether gender equality, education for all, or fighting climate change. There are many ways you can help.

Be part of the generation that makes poverty history.

Here are some more ways to get involved:

Sign the Global Poverty Project petition calling on countries
to support efforts to end extreme poverty by 2030

When the petition reaches 1 million signatures, it will be sent to the
heads of governments in countries around the world for action.

 

Sign the Zero Poverty 2030 Petition
