Since 2009, Global Citizen has leveraged the power of governments, artists, corporations, NGO partners, and civil society with one common goal: to end extreme poverty. The organisation focuses their campaigning on the key SDGs that they believe will have the greatest impact on people who are living in extreme poverty. These are Health, Education, Food & Hunger, Water & Sanitation, Environment and Gender Equality.
Through the Global Citizen platform, engaged citizens learn about the systemic causes of extreme poverty, take action on those issues, and earn rewards for their actions — as part of a global community committed to lasting change.
To date, Global Citizens have taken over 24.8 million actions which, when combined with high-level advocacy work, have resulted in over 100 commitments made by governments, multilateral institutions and corporations.
These commitments are worth $48.4 billion. Of this total, $22 billion has already been disbursed, affecting 880 million lives, with another $26.4 billion set to be released in the upcoming years.
