Recent studies tell an incredibly positive story of progress against extreme poverty around the world. We now have decades of peer-reviewed research supporting the fact that we are making significant strides in combating the issue, but we’re finding out that people simply don’t know. People still believe the myth that the problem is too big and the solution is too small. But it’s not true!
We have hope that we can see the end of extreme poverty in our lifetime. We are motivated to keep forging a path toward its demise. We have the guts to get our hands dirty to do the work that is necessary. If there is one message that we could shout from the rooftops and have the whole world hear, it would be this:
We can defeat poverty!
