Two useful map and graph resources that I find myself referring to frequently are presented below. Add your favorite poverty maps and graphs in the comment section below.

  1. Thanks Joel. Walking with the extreme poor and listening to their stories are some of the best heart and soul motivators for action. I appreciate your comments. Keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks C.H. these graphs are helpful. However my favorite graph doesn’t represent extreme poverty using statistics… its the look of hopelessness in the eyes of a father struggling to provide food for his family and the children of his siblings who have already died of AIDS-related illnesses.
