NO POVERTY CAMPAIGN
No Poverty Campaign (NPC) is an Africa-wide poverty alleviation initiative focussed on equipping vulnerable individuals and empowering marginalised communities to survive and thrive. We exist to campaign against poverty, especially the pervasive extreme kind of poverty that is prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, which inhibits access to basic food, shelter, clothing, education, and healthcare.
27 of the 28 poorest nations on earth are in Sub-Saharan Africa
40% of people living in extreme poverty worldwide would be in Nigeria and DRC Congo by 2050, and Africa could be home to 90% of the global poor by 2030
239 million people are hungry in Sub-saharan Africa, and hunger accounts for over 50% of all child deaths in Africa
203 million people over the age of 15 years who are illiterate are in sub- Saharan Africa
