The problem of global poverty is the greatest moral challenge of our time that contrasts with the economic growth observed around the world in the last two decades. According to the recent UNDP report, more than one billion people currently live on less than a dollar a day and suffer from malnutrition. Over eight million people die each year because of lack of access to essential resources. The World Health Program states that every six seconds a child dies of hunger.
