According to Global development, nearly half all children in sub-Saharan Africa are in extreme poverty. Meanwhile Eradicating extreme poverty by 2030 seems to be a distant target as UNICEF and World Bank figures show almost 383 million people survive on less than $1.90 a day. Нis data shows that Nigeria is rated with the highest number of poverty of 86 million seconded by Democratic Republic Congo which accounts for about 55.1 Million people according to the World Bank.
Considering the poverty in Sub-sharia Africa as stated according to World Bank, around half of those living in extreme poverty by 2020 will hail from hard-to-reach fragile and conflict-aوٴected states, moreover, SubSaharan Africa accounts for half of the global poor.
