"Ending extreme poverty is in our hands"

A lot has changed in a decade.

10 years ago, Facebook existed on a computer in a college dorm. There were no tweets, hashtags or iPhones. The only people occupying Wall Street wore suits and the Tea Party had a colonial Boston accent. And ONE was but a few.

Eleições Europeias:

Around the world 1.2 billion people are living on less than 1 euro a dayand nearly one in eight people go to bed hungry every night.

But, there is hope in sight - in the last 20 years extreme poverty has halved, and millions of lives are saved around the world thanks to vaccinations and better health care.

If this trend continues we could see the end of extreme poverty by 2030; but we need your help to make it happen.

We’re asking the European Union to honour its promises on providing aid for the world’s poorest, and to make governments and businesses transparent and accountable, which will help African citizens follow the money and ensure resources are being used to save lives.

Europe is the world’s biggest aid donor - and the way this aid is spent is vital.

As the May elections approach, candidates need to know that extreme poverty is an issue voters care about, and want to see them act on.

Dear candidates,Ending extreme poverty is in our hands. Together, we can virtually eliminate it by 2030. Please help make it happen by building support for the poorest countries and making governments and businesses transparent and accountable.
