1

Focus on Vulnerable Groups

When a girl child is educated, her well-being is impacted positively. She can lift herself and everyone around her out of poverty

2

Focus on Education

Education in all its forms is key to breaking the cycle of poverty. On individual level, education can be the difference between a life lived below or above the poverty line. On societal scale, educating girls is seen as the closest thing to a silver bullet for eradicating poverty.

3

Focus on Health

Poverty is both a cause and a consequence of poor health. Poverty increases the chances of poor health. Poor health, in turn, traps communities in poverty, creating a negative feedback loop sometimes referred to as the health-poverty trap.

4

Focus on Financial Inclusion

The World Bank Group considers financial inclusion a key enabler to reduce extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity. Access to financial services empower poor people to capture opportunities and build resilience.

5

Focus on Nigeria / Africa

Currently 7.2 billion people live in the world, where Africa makes up 1.3 billion of this. Meanwhile 430.3 million of the African population live below poverty line
