World Poverty
To understand the scope of what half the world’s population face, here is what poverty looks like, in numbers:
  • 3 billion people live on less than $2.50 per day, including 1.2 billion people in extreme poverty who live on less than $1.25 per day.
  • About 75% of the world’s poor populations live in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their livelihood.
  • In developing countries, the poor spend 60-80% of their income on food. Americans spend less than 10%.
  • Over 800 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat and 3 million children die from malnutrition each year.
  • Approximately 1.2 billion people live without electricity.
  • 40 million children worldwide live without adequate shelter.
  • More than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean water.
  • 270 million children have no access to health services
  • Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read or write.
  • 2 billion people do not have a bank account or access to basic financial services.
