When you work for an international nonprofit whose mission is to end hunger and poverty, every day is World Poverty Day. Our staff in the field spend their days working directly with communities, families and individuals, giving them the tools and training they need to end their own poverty. Here at our headquarters in the United States, and in our support offices around the country, we spend our days helping people understand the realities of hunger and poverty and how important their role is in ending it. 

You are one of those people.

If you are reading this, you are part of the solution to ending extreme poverty by 2030.
