- 9 out of 10 BGCPR participants live in poverty
- 81% of our participants families have annual incomes of less than $15,000.
Living in poverty means that their youth grow up in families that do not have enough income to cover their basic needs of quality education, food, health services, and transportation, among others. As a result, they do not develop the necessary skills to meet their personal and professional goals, which would allow them to escape poverty. They see families and youth with low income trapped in this cycle, generation after generation, surviving month after month.See more
