The month's show chronicles a truly remarkable story. According to the Acton Institute's blog:

"Extreme poverty – the number of people in the world living on $1.90 a day – fell from 15.7 percent in 2010 to 8.6 percent in 2018 (the most recent year for which we have data), according to the World Bank. Child mortality fell by nearly a third, from 51.3 deaths per 1,000 children to 38.6 in 2018. Life expectancy has risen by nearly two years in the last eight."

The PovertyCure Network consists of over 400 organizations in over 150 countries and is a big part of the progress noted above.
