The Global Poverty Project presents 1.4 Billion Reasons

1.4 billion people on our planet live in extreme poverty. 

1 person can make a difference. 

That person is... You. 

1.4 Billion Reasons is a thought provoking presentation that moves audiences to make simple lifestyle changes. These changes will enable the world?s poorest to break the poverty cycle. 

The Presentation
A simple yet ground-breaking presentation is travelling the world, inspiring and empowering audiences in its path. Based on leading research, the 45 or 90 minute presentation clearly articulates the facts of extreme poverty and demonstrates that by making simple changes everyone can be a part of the solution. 

Compelling and challenging, the presentation moves audiences to take action and become a part of the movement to end extreme poverty. 

US Activation
The Global Poverty Project has presented to 11,000 individuals in the US since 2011. Working in partnership with leading charities, community groups and organisations across the country, we deliver the presentation at conferences, schools, universities, churches, workplaces and festivals. 

How can you help end extreme poverty?
1.4 Billion Reasons is not after your money. The presentation explains how your everyday actions – in what you learn, say, buy, give and do – can be connected to the ending of extreme poverty. Small actions in your life can create big opportunities for the world’s poorest.
 
1.4 Billion Reasons links audience members with leading organisations so that each and every one of us can take action to end extreme poverty.
