Over 530 Million People In South Asia Are Experiencing Multidimensional Poverty
Multidimensional poverty focuses on the difficulties that underserved communities face in all areas of life - poor health, inaccessible education, low living standards, unfair wages, and more. With millions of social entrepreneurs driving change in South Asia, there is still room for globalization and community building.
According to the World Bank, recessions due to the pandemic have pushed millions of South Asian workers in the labor markets back into extreme poverty.
But, the disproportionate impact on lower income communities can be reversed.
Through giving work, preserving and respecting human capital, supporting small businesses, empowering lower income communities, and facilitating economic recovery by working together. More than ever, it is critically important to focus on making conscious purchasing decisions.
