Oct 17 is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Extreme poverty refers to making below the international poverty line of $1.90/day. But poverty is more than just a lack of income. It is also a lack of access to services and essential goods. 

October 17 is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty at the United Nations. Join the campaign to #EndPoverty by promoting the call to action and connecting with people from around the world who have joined the fight to overcome poverty.
