Hugh Evans on ending extreme poverty
Watch this video of Global Citizen founder, Hugh Evans, on ending extreme poverty.
I have known Hugh Evans, a humanitarian and fellow Australian, for more than a decade and have always been a supporter of his work towards ending extreme poverty in the world's poorest countries. In 2003, Hugh co-founded his first charity, the Oaktree Foundation, of which I was a patron. The Oaktree Foundation is an entirely youth-driven development agency that aims to empower young people in developing countries through sustainable education programs. Hugh was a leader in the Australian Make Poverty History campaign and went on to found The Global Poverty Project, an international education and advocacy organization working towards the end of extreme poverty by 2030.
