According to the World Bank, the global poverty line stands at $1.90. It’s the bare minimum people need to afford basic needs.
Of course, there’s more to poverty than money. The lack of access to other non-monetary indicators like education, water, electricity, and sanitation, to name a few, all work together to create a multidimensional system that keeps people entrenched in poverty.
But if we can eliminate at least one facet of such a complex system, then we will already have succeeded. The elimination of one crucial aspect of poverty can give people the foundation they need to go beyond.
This is what TARTLE wants to commit to with the Data Packets for Good campaign. We want to help individuals living in a constant state of fear, who need the opportunity to empower themselves.
Through intensive research and survey of our own users, we’ve discovered that we have the ability to move people above the global poverty line.
In this campaign, you do not need to be a TARTLE user. For only $2.78, you have the power to move a family out of the poverty line for a day. Your entire contribution goes directly to these people who are in deep need of economic opportunity.
You have the power to help someone secure their next meal and focus on improving other aspects of their life: education, livelihood, and moving out of poverty as a whole.
