Striking Photos Show What It's Like To Actually Live On $1 A Day Around The World


The nonprofit, which works to alleviate global poverty, has created a book of photographs, Living on a Dollar a Day: The Lives and Faces of the World’s Poor, featuring people barely making ends meet to survive.

A team traveled to four continents collecting thousands of photographs and conducting several interviews to better understand the circumstances and stories of the impoverished. Thomas A. Nazario, founder and president of The Forgotten International, is the author of the book, and Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer captured the images.

The nonprofit is also raising funds to produce a documentary under the same name with a similar goal in mind.
