Imagine trying to live on less than $1.90 a day—the international poverty line. It would be almost impossible to find shelter and something to eat for that amount. There’s very little chance that you would get decent nutrition, let alone safe drinking water, medical care, and education. In India, the situation is even worse. The national poverty line is just 44¢ a day, and 200 million Indians live on this miniscule amount.
