Girls & Women
Girls and women are essential to building healthier, better-educated and sustainable communities. Women and girls are too often afflicted with some of the harshest aspects of poverty. Instead of victims, women and girls can be powerful community leaders.
Health
Healthy people are able to live fuller, happer lives. They are able to pull themselves out of extreme poverty. For pregnant mothers, newborns and children a healthy life requires vaccines and access to healthcare. Everyone must be healthy to end poverty.
Food & Hunger
Well-fed people create stable communities, perform better in school and take advantage of the opportunities to end extreme poverty. The world has more than enough food to feed everyone, it’s time to make sure everyone gets enough to thrive.
Education

The world has cut the number of children without an education in half. This progress must extend to the over 50 million still left out. Educated and healthy children will lead their communities out of poverty and build the thriving nations of tomorrow.

Environment
A healthy planet takes care of its people. Healthy people take care of the planet. Protecting the earth promotes the people who live on it. Improving the environment gives people the opportunity to survive and thrive in a world free of extreme poverty.
Water & Sanitation
Clean water, a place to “poo” and waste systems are not too much to ask. Over a billion people suffer the indignity of open defecation with almost as many lacking clean water. Together, the world can end these risks and save millions of lives a year.
Community Development & Innovation

Ending extreme poverty needs innovative ideas, good governance and sustainable financing. Funding global development needs inspiration from every part of the global community to empower people to pull themselves out of poverty.

Citizenship
The world needs active global citizens who are engaged in the world, knowledgeable about its diversity and passionate about change. Ending extreme poverty requires information and ideas that inspire and motivate the global community to act.

Since 2012, millions of Global Citizens around the world have taken over ten million actions to solve the world's biggest challenges. That’s ten million emails, tweets, petition signatures and phone calls targeting world leaders to end extreme poverty by 2030.

To date, the actions by our global community along with our high level advocacy efforts and with our partners, have resulted in 130 commitments and policy announcements from leaders, including financial aid valued at over $30 billion that is set to affect the lives of 1 billion people.

How They Work
Through their mix of content and events, grassroots organizing and extensive reach through digital channels, Global Citizen is building the world’s largest movement for social action. They organize massive global campaigns to amplify the actions of Global Citizens from around the world.
