News: Join the movement to end poverty

Since 1990, aid has helped to reduce extreme poverty, including almost halving the number of children around the world who die before their fifth birthday – 14,000 fewer children dying every single day.

Let’s help make poverty history by giving our fair share of aid – just 70 cents in every $100 of Australia’s national income by 2020.

As a step towards contributing our fair share, by 2016 we’re asking our political leaders to fulfil their bipartisan promise to give 50 cents in every $100 to tackle global poverty.
