While global poverty rates have been cut by more than half since 2000, one in ten people in developing regions are still living with their families on less than the international poverty line of US$1.90 a day, and there are millions more who make little more than this daily amount. Significant progress has been made in many countries within Eastern and Southeastern Asia, but up to 42% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa continues to live below the poverty line.
Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making. Most people living below the poverty line belong to two regions: Southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa High poverty rates are often found in small, fragile and conflict-affected countries

Our voice for adoption, unifying communities’ commitment to permanency for waiting children and youth. We support and encourage people along their adoption journey, connecting them to the families and resources they need. Our organisation is the only national non-profit organization in the USA serving all parties in the adoption “constellation” – adoptees, adoptive families, and birth families worldwide. We are also at the forefront of the youth permanency movement in the United State.
This year we are participating in #GivingTuesday to help prevent the 30,000 children and youth waiting for forever families from aging out of foster and group care without a lifelong connection to at least one safe, loving and supportive adult.
Help us ensure the success of our initiatives to support all children and youth in and from government care, and support adoptive families across United States, Australia donate, Switzerland, Singapore, Netherlands, UK, Denmark, Finland and Africa.
