According to the United Nations, nearly half of the world's population - more than 3 billion people - live on less than $2.50 a day. Over one billion of them are children. Among these children could be the next Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, or Nelson Mandela. The fact that these children will live their lives worrying about their next meal, instead of curing cancer and solving climate change, is a catastrophe for the human race. This is unacceptable, unsustainable, and a giant waste of human potential.
We want to eradicate poverty forever.
It is time to ensure that every person on earth can afford clean water, nutritious food, and access to education. Ensuring universal access to these basics will jump start a revolution that can reshape the world and create a better place for all of us.
