WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada, founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan) Special Report discusses the staggering number of children living in crushing poverty globally — equal to the entire populations of the U.S. and Canada combined.
Around 375 million children worldwide — including nearly one-in-six children in the U.S. — live in crushing poverty, says a new report recently released in tandem with the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, Oct. 17.
The staggering global number — equal to the entire populations of the U.S. and Canada combined — is revealed in a special report by leading mission agency Gospel for Asia (GFA World), as the U.N. marks its annual awareness day, aimed at stirring action to fight poverty.
The report — Fighting Global Poverty With Ideas — says education and ideas, along with teaching values such as compassion and integrity, can help catapult the next generation out of the jaws of poverty.
A Global Scourge
Grinding poverty is most often associated with developing nations in Africa and Asia, but it’s a scourge in wealthy, developed countries, too.
According to PovertyUSA.org — a Catholic initiative — nearly one-in-six children in the U.S. lives in poverty. The federal poverty threshold for a family of four is around $25,700 a year.
