“End poverty in all its forms everywhere” is the theme of the Sustainable Development Goal 1 (SDG1).
More than 700 million people, or 10% of the world’s population, still live in extreme poverty today, struggling to meet the most basic needs, such as health, education, and access to water and sanitation, to name a few. The majority of people living on less than $1.90 a day live in sub-Saharan Africa. Worldwide, poverty rates in rural areas are 17.2%, more than triple the same rates in urban areas.
