IT IS ESTIMATED that 1 billion of our global population survive on one US dollar or less a day. Although the road to extreme poverty is hugely varied and intricate, the everyday struggles faced by the planet’s poorest are sadly all too common.
A new book produced by Thomas A. Nazario (creator of the nonprofit The Forgotten International) and photographer and Pulitzer Prize winner Renée C. Byer offers us a glimpse into the lives of these people.
A direct call for action, Living on a Dollar a Day: The Lives and Faces of the World’s Poor is a welcome reminder that collaborative change must be driven forward on a global scale.
