The Global Poverty Project is an international education and advocacy organisation working to catalyse the movement to end extreme poverty. The Project was founded by Hugh Evans and Simon Moss and aims to increase the number and effectiveness of people taking action to end extreme poverty. They launched a new initiative that will raise awareness and inspire communities to take action for the 1.4 billion people still living in extreme poverty.
Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Hans Rosling, Professor of International Health at Karolinska Institute, spoke at the Global Poverty Projects event earlier this month, about the key innovations and commitment needed to continue making progress against global challenges like disease and poverty in 2012.
