How you can help
We have the opportunity in the coming decade to cut world poverty by half. Billions more people could enjoy the fruits of the global economy, and tens of millions of lives could be saved… And for the first time, the cost is utterly affordable. All that is needed is action.
Jeffrey D Sachs, Special Advisor to UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan, July 2005
For some people a dollar a day, just 50p, is nothing. For others it means the world.
The official ‘poverty line’ in India is living off less than 1 dollar, 50p, 45 rupees a day. For a marginalised village family in India that can buy enough to survive another day – lentils, salt, rice, oil, greens. However, it is not enough to offer safe water, health, literacy, choice, opportunity or hope. But one more dollar, another 50p, an extra 45 rupees can start to make a difference.
For most families in Europe and North America, 1 dollar, 1 Euro, just 50p, is nothing. How many times a day do we make a ‘fifty pence decision’? An impulse purchase of an evening newspaper, a chocolate bar, a drink?
There is a way to make your 50p go a lot further than just a drink. Fifty pence a day, or just £15 a month will support our livelihood projects in India – delivering access to water, health-care, secure shelter, literacy, training.
