Global poverty is the product of reversible policy failures overseen by politicians, past and present. The poorest of the poor don’t vote in American or European elections. They don’t make donations to political parties or hire lobbyists in D.C., London or Canberra.
The Global Poverty Project’s mission is to stand up for the world’s poorest people. We fight for the full funding of Millennium Development Goals and advocate meaningful change to government and corporate policies that block progress and entrench injustice.
When I was 13, I did become a Christian. And so it was when I was 13, that I thought… I just… I really saw a good example in Jesus and how he was just so… such a tremendous radical love and service of the poor. I just thought, ‘Man, why can’t we all do the same?’
I really consider my goal is that, wherever I am in life, I want to be a social advocate.
