A Dollar a Day Fights Against Extreme Poverty

Dollar_a_DayThe World Bank defines extreme poverty as living on less than $1.25 day.  The bank estimates that 1.2 billion people across the globe live in these conditions.  The population of Honduras is over 8.1 million[1], of which 67% live below the poverty line[2], and nearly a quarter live in extreme poverty.[3] Commit to investing a dollar a day and help Adelante end extreme poverty in our lifetime.
