What Will It Take to End Poverty?

The World Bank recently started an online blitz based around a question.  This question is: What will it take to end poverty?

The new World Bank President, Jim Yong Kim, started this new social media campaign in September.  He posted an article online, available here, stating that “1.3 billion people live on less than $1.25 a day.”  The new President’s goal is to “end poverty and expand prosperity.”

If you are in a hurry and prefer visual video over reading, the message is available on YouTube here.  A LinkedIn transcript and article of the video is available here and the video ends with the strong message of: “We know what it takes.  We just have to do it.”

So… join in on the conversation.  #whatwillittake
