End Extreme Poverty

WHAT IS 'WHAT IF 2030'?

Nations and organizations from across the globe are seeking to completely eradicate poverty by year 2030 with the agreement and support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

'What If 2030' seeks to mobilize people like you to ensure we are doing everything we can to make sure these goals are met!

WHY NOW?

The way we work to see these goals come to fruition here in the U.S. is through what’s called Poverty-Focused Development Assistance (PFDA). PFDA funds the programs outlined in the goals - like education, vaccination, clean water, and equality initiatives around the world. Every year in budget negotiations, PFDA is at-risk of being cut. At less than 1% of the total budget, it doesn't make a huge dent in paring down the budget, but it can lead to unnecessary loss of life and livelihood for many around the world. We must use our voices to protect this vital funding.

Will we in stand with them?


 

Dear Congressional Leaders,

As you seek to reduce our nation’s deficit I recognize that tough decisions must be made, but I have one question to ask you:

What if we could end extreme poverty?

I believe we can, and I humbly ask that you ensure life saving aid programs remain effective and efficient. I believe it is critical and possible for our nation to reduce the deficit while continuing to save lives around the world.

I recognize the difficulty of your task, and am thankful for your service.

God bless you. My prayers are with you.
