Number of people in extreme poverty cut in half between 1980 and 2010. World Bank Data.

Global statistics reported by the World Bank show encouraging reductions of extreme poverty (defined as people earning less than $1.25/day) over the past two decades. The actions of the governments of Brazil, Russian, India, China, and others have contributed to these gains. Sub-Saharan Africa remains one of the most impoverished regions of the world, and development efforts have two goals; One: direct aid to lift people onto the economic ladder; and Two: access to economic opportunities.
