Poverty compounds humankind’s worst dilemmas. Eradicating it would result in an improved quality of life for all – ensuring access to nutritious food, clean water, quality medical care, education and more. It would boost economies and revitalize our environmental resources. In other words, eradicating poverty would help individuals and communities thrive.
