20 April 2015 Anglican Alliance joins faith leaders and World Bank committing to end extreme poverty by 2030

More than 30 leaders from world religions and global faith-based organisations have come together to commit themselves to a collective action to end extreme poverty by 2030. This is a goal shared by the World Bank Group, which has convened this dialogue process with faith groups under the leadership of World Bank President Jim Kim. The declaration, Ending Extreme Poverty: A Moral and Spiritual Imperative,  sets out the vision for action: that humanity has both the responsibility and the capability to lift the last billion people out of extreme poverty in our generation. The Anglican Alliance participated in the roundtable hosted by the World Bank in February 2015, and has signed up to the declaration.
