Over 25 million people are prisoners of extreme poverty in Bangladesh.
These people survive despite seriously challenging conditions, trying to
make the most of what little resources or relationships they can draw
from. They are illiterate, marginalised and for the most part,
overlooked. But this is not an insurmountable problem. Many countries
have overcome extreme (and moderate) poverty.
The roles that national government, local government, the media, private
sector, international development partners, youth, NGOs, and citizens
can play in eradicating extreme poverty are highlighted.
