The African continent, despite its rich natural resources, has consistently lower GDP per capita compared to other regions. Over the past centuries, Africa's share of income has decreased, with the average European earning twenty times more than the average African. Although African nations have seen steady growth in GDP per capita, they still lag behind other parts of the world.
31 of the 54 African countries have a low Human Development Index score below 0.55, illustrating the widespread poverty across the continent. Poverty is not just about household income or economic growth, but it impacts all aspects of a person's life experience, affecting their basic needs and overall existence.
Project Humanity e.V. works to address poverty in Africa, providing food, clothing, school supplies, and healthcare to those in need, regardless of religion or tribe.
