Focus on Livelihood

Poverty is one of the most pressing problems our world faces today. According to the World Bank, about 9.2% of the world lives in poverty. That’s 719 million people struggling to live on less than $2.15 a day. Poverty is multidimensional, and those affected often experience deprivations in health, education, and living standards. The cycle of poverty is difficult to break. But there’s hope.
