According to the World Bank, “Extreme poverty is living on less than $1.90 per person per day.”
Let’s just take a moment and let that number sink in: $1.90.
Throughout the world, countless are affected by extreme poverty. From the children to the workforce, it’s easy to lose hope when you can barely make ends meet. That’s why we have made it our life mission to do our part to stop the plague. These bracelets that fight extreme poverty have inspired us to do more.
Here are some ways we, along with the rest of the world, can end extreme poverty:
1. Sponsor a child
There are so many ways you can sponsor a child. You can get in touch with your local municipality, work with a charitable organization or take part in the Yuda Bands project.
When you decide to work with us, you are going to help one child go to school and give him or her a shot at a brighter future. You can get started here. We’ll make sure it will be the easiest process you can ever embark on. The difference you can make in this child’s life will inspire others to do the same.
2. Donate to a cause
Poverty stems from a lot of causes, whether it be the lack of education or opportunity. There are plenty of community service projects and causes that aim to end extreme poverty. You can choose which ones resonate with you most and donate to their cause.
Remember, it’s not about how much you can give. No matter how small your donation is, you are consciously making the effort of improving the lives of those in need. Perhaps this will even inspire you to create your cause and start your project.
3. Educate, educate, educate
We believe education is key to ending poverty. Educated children are more aware, knowledgeable and capable of taking control of their lives. They will have a better understanding of how things work. Therefore, they can make better decisions.
You can take part in education for poverty by joining causes and other related community service projects. Whether it’s sponsoring a child’s education or offering tutoring programs, you can do your part.
4. Join a service club
More kids and teenagers are getting involved in our fight to end poverty. If you are aged 12-18 and would want nothing more than helping those who are in need, join a service club. You will have an opportunity to tackle projects to help people in your local community.
If there aren’t any service clubs in your school or area, you can always start one.
The fact is this: we can all do something to help end extreme poverty. It doesn’t have to be big or expensive. Sometimes, the simplest idea can make the greatest impact.
