More about our impact

Ending Global Poverty

The number of people escaping poverty has been falling steadily for almost two decades. However, the Covid-19 pandemic reversed this positive trend, increasing the number of people living in poverty and slowing the rate at which people escaped poverty in the pre-pandemic era. Currently, a person escapes poverty only every 2.54 seconds.
