  How To Make Donation?  
  Donate to GP3 Korea  
  Our public awareness campaign is far from merely requesting charity money. It is rather an attempt to provide new ways to entice people engaged in tackling global poverty issues more broadly than before. We are excited to diffuse public knowledge of issues affecting global poverty, and bring attention to philanthropic commitments. Sharing knowledge and information on poverty in the world’s poorest countries is a key to getting more people connected. Open access to public knowledge of global poverty in Korean is essential in enhancing social awareness, and significantly promotes innovative solutions in poverty reduction.

When times are tough, governments are quick to excuse themselves from international responsibilities. The poor in the least developed countries become more vulnerable, and continued attention is needed to alleviate poverty. Generous donations will be used to directly to support national-wide presentations, youth forums, media production and other various events aimed to raise public awareness on global poverty issues.

More importantly, it will be also used to cover the cost of managing data storage, servers, communications, and mobile application development. It will help us improve software that runs the Global Poverty Digital Library ( The continuity of the Global Poverty Digital Library and social media are integral parts of our project. We are committed to being accountable to our donors. If you have questions on your giving or any inquiry, please contact us. E-mail :

Key Facts of Global Poverty

An estimated 1.3 billion people live in extreme poverty with below $1.25 a day. This is equivalent to 22 per cent of the population in the developing world. Nearly three quarters of this population reside in South Asia (571 million) and Sub-Saharan Africa (396 million). Another 284 million live in East Asia, and less than 50 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and Eastern Europe and Central Asia combined.

Severe Poverty Rate : More than 1.3 billion people live on less than $1.25 a day, and more than 2 billion live on less than $2 a day. Hunger and malnutrition remain as the number one risk to health worldwide – more people die from hunger and malnutrition than from AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Poverty, however, is not only a matter of food shortage, but a matter of other factors of human and economic development: access to essential medicine, availability of drinking water, AIDS control, climate change and sanitation.
Check Your Myths : Sometimes people criticize that foreign aid impedes economic independence of the poorest countries. However, foreign aid can and does help essential steps to development initiatives. Global poverty is not too big of a problem to address. Regardless of its size, the seriousness of the problems can be reduced.
Doubt over Effectiveness of Aid : Some cast doubt over the effectiveness of aid and unleash a barrage of criticism on it. Corruption does exist, but there are numerous strategies in place to ensure that aid reaches the people in need. Constant effort s to cut corruption can tackle lawless regions with rampant corruptions.
Public Health : HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, all of which are treatable diseases, claim the lives of over 8,000 people every day in Africa, because of the lack of access to health care.
Drawing Water : Women in developing countries travel an average of almost four miles each day to collect water.
Educational Opportunity : Around 72 million children around the world still do not attend primary school, and almost half of them have never received any education at all.
