Since 1990, the global rates of extreme poverty have gone from around 40% to around 10%, and ending World Poverty entirely by 2030 is one of the UN’s Key Sustainable Development Goals, announced in 2015.

In this episode, we’ll be meeting some of the people and organisations aiming to eradicate poverty through the use of technology.
