Alone, we can only do a little.
Together, we can do a lot in the fight against poverty.

There’s more to poverty than meets the eye. That’s why we’re inviting the public to rethink it on 17 October – the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty – and beyond, and to fight it with us.

The theme — ‘Together Empower!’ — represents how togetherness and partnership can bring about empowerment, which in turn enables those from low-income backgrounds to unleash their talent and potential. Poverty is a complex and multifaceted issue, and there is no single way to address it. By working together with people living in poverty to build resilience in adversity though, we can create a long-lasting and positive impact in the fight against poverty.

You can support our local and global anti-poverty work by learning about poverty, joining our future events and donating!
