Global Poverty Project

1.4 billion people on our planet live in extreme poverty. The Global Poverty Project seeks to invigorate the global movement to take effective concerted action on poverty through the presentation 1.4 billion reasons.

A simple yet ground-breaking presentation, 1.4 billion reasons, is travelling the world, inspiring and empowering audiences in its path. Based on leading research, the 90 minute presentation clearly articulates the facts of extreme poverty and demonstrates that by making simple changes everyone can be a part of the solution. Compelling and challenging, the presentation moves audiences to take action and become a part of the movement to end extreme poverty.
