About 1.4 billion people in the world still live in extreme poverty - on less than US$1.25 per day. They lack the essentials that we take for granted: clean water, food, healthcare and education. Despite the scale of the challenge, Christian Aid believes that poverty can be eradicated, but we can only do this by working together with the private sector, governments and civil society organisations. 'Business is a primary driver of innovation, investment and job creation. There is no longer any doubt that business plays an integral role in delivering economic and social progress' United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, September 2010.Below: our partner DDS trains women in India in methods to preserve seeds.
