The Global Poverty Project is an international organization committed to increase the awareness and effectiveness of campaigns to bring about an end to extreme poverty. They design and host ideas and projects and they're trying to change the rules so as to in 2030 there won't remain anybody living under $1.25 a day.
This idea was set by Hugh Evans and his partner Simon Moss, two young Melbourne-based boys, back in 2008. They believed that a change was possible, but first it was needed to expand the acknowledgment of the reality of many families struggling to subsist within less than a few dollars per day. And then, that people (both normal regular people and politic parties or NGOs) took part in this change.
Reaching their core values is possible through campaigns. They create and take part in different projects, such as Global Citizen or 1.4 billion reasons, to educate, awareness, help and improve this huge trouble known as living under the extreme poverty line. They organize events and festivals, fundraising, they raise money, they try to change policies and, moreover, they believe in a better world.
Now I'm Global Citizen and I'm a little more aware of the struggling some people has to go through. But I'm willing to contribute with our little grain of sand for help. Are you?
