ONE: 2019: The year we put extreme poverty on the defensive
Gayle E. Smith, president and CEO of the ONE Campaign, discusses working toward ending extreme poverty in 2019, writing, “The coming year is full of opportunities to help the world’s poorest, but complacency and the rising tide of nationalism remain our biggest foes. It’s on each and every one of us to help amplify the voices of those who are working diligently to lift themselves out of extreme poverty. Buoyed by our progress and opportunity, it’s within our power to put extreme poverty on the defensive” (1/10).
