Global Citizens around the world are powering our movement to end global poverty. Join us today.
Since 2012, 23.4 million actions by Global Citizens have helped generate commitments and policy announcements from leaders valued at over $47 billion. These commitments have affected the lives of 880 million people to date with interventions that range from vaccinating a child to providing one year of education. These things will ultimately help people lift themselves out of poverty.
