The Good News on Poverty

UK musician, Bono, had very good news to share when he presented at a TED Talk.  Eight million patients have been receiving aids medicine in the past 13 years and malaria deaths are down by 75%.

The number of people living in extreme poverty has halved between 1990 and 2010 declining from 43% to 21%.  This is a marvellous statistic in itself.

Calling himself a factualist as it’s the facts that he’s working with, Bono presents to us how we can virtually eradicate extreme poverty by 2028.  He tells us we could be the great generation that Mandela asked us to be.

Together we have power in numbers and we can use this force to create amazing change in this world for those most in need.
