International Day to End Poverty 2022

Every year on October 17, people worldwide commemorate the International Day to End Poverty. This year’s theme is Dignity for all in practice: The commitments we make together for social justice, peace and the planet. 


International Day to End Poverty 2022

The observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty can be traced back to 17 October 1987. The commemoration of this day reflects the willingness of people living in poverty to use their expertise to contribute to the eradication of poverty. People of all backgrounds gather every year on 17 October to renew their commitment and show solidarity.
