POVERTY... ILLNESS... ILLITERACY.... We live in a world where more than a billion people -- 1 IN 5 -- live on less than a dollar a day. 42 million live with HIV/AIDS; 9 out of 10 of them in developing countries.Hundreds of millions in these countries lack access to clean water. Only 1 in 3 children in Africa completes primary education.
The National Cooperative Business Association is on the front line tackling these problems and more.
More than 50 years experience in international development, NCBA has demonstrated that cooperatives are a key tool in lifting people out of poverty. Why? Because cooperatives help people help themselves giving them greater over their economic future.
