Welcome to Poverty Week. We appreciate you visiting our site.
We invite you to join us by initiating a Poverty Week in your own area.
You can also make a difference simply by sharing our video, teaching a lesson on poverty, or raising money to help those in need.
"The campaign to make poverty history - a central moral challenge of our age - cannot remain a task for the few, it must become a calling for the many…Together, we can make real and sufficient progress towards the end of poverty."
Kofi Annan, Former UN Secretary General
Around the world, more than a billion people live on less then one dollar a day.
The task of combating global poverty is daunting. Success is possible only through collective attention and effort
Poverty Week is an opportunity to promote awareness and activism in your community. By organizing your own Poverty Week for your school, organization, church, or community, you can significantly contribute to the fight against global poverty.
Poverty Resolutions has developed a variety of educational materials, resources, and ideas to help you plan lessons, presentations, activities, and events for Poverty Week.
