780 million people, 11 percent of the world's population, live in extreme poverty on less than $1.90 per day. At least 17 million children suffer from severe acute malnutrition around the world. Severe acute malnutrition is the direct cause of death for 2 million children every year.
The dynamics of Poverty
Children, lone parents, disabled people and people in households in which no one works are more likely to experience poverty, to remain in poverty for longer and to experience deeper poverty, than others.
Poverty robs people of choices and opportunities. People who are poor are more likely to be denied the tools and the skills necessary to succeed in our society. People blame the poor for their plight, when in fact poverty spreads through denial of opportunity.
