"Much like an ""Inconvenient Truth"" and ""Ted Talks"", 1.4 Billion Reasons is a world-class multimedia presentation that explains the reality facing the 1.4 billion people currently living in extreme poverty, and provides audiences with the information and tools they need to take effective action against extreme poverty. The presentation is structured around five key questions:  -What is extreme poverty? -Can we do anything about it? -What are the barriers to ending extreme poverty? -Why should we care? -What can we do?
