GET INSPIRED

We have designed our sessions to inspire you and fill you up with renewed passion for fighting poverty.

LEARN FROM THE BEST

Listen to our faculty of speakers from all around the world, experts in the fight against poverty.

CATCH THE VISION

Hear from the leadership of Rotary Clubs as we discuss the plan to end ultra-poverty by 2030.

Join us at our Ending Ultra-Poverty Summit to learn how you can be a part of this exciting movement.

Global poverty is on the decline and together we could wipe it out in one generation.

This year we will be focussing on three questions:

Who are the ultra-poor?

1

What tools can we use to eliminate ultra-poverty?

2

How will Rotary help us reach the goal?

3

We will look at the most vulnerable, who they are, and what their needs are.

Find out how modern thinking and technology have given us unprecedented opportunities to eliminate ultra-poverty.

Learn what Rotary International is doing to do our part by aligning our areas of focus to take up this mission.

Our Partners

We are excited to work with these leaders in the fight against ultra-poverty.

Working to ensure that 100 million families rise above the US$1.25 a day threshold adjusted for purchasing power parity (PPP), between 1990 and 2015.
