Beyoncé Reflects On Helping Raise $7.1 Billion To End Poverty

By Posted on 64 2 m read

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are giving back through the Global Citizen organization. The couple recently took a trip to South Africa and India where they were able to help raise $7.1 billion to aid in Global Citizen’s fight to end poverty.

Organizers hoped to reach a goal of $1 billion but completely surpassed that amount with help from groups such as the World Bank and the South African government. The donations will go towards fighting poverty across the Earth and help improve education, healthcare, sanitation, women’s rights, and countless other causes for millions across the world.

Beyoncé took to her Instagram to reflect on Global Citizen’s major accomplishment and gave praise to all of those who volunteer to help make such a positive change.

“After settling in at home from a beautiful trip to South Africa and India, I am still in awe that 7.1 BILLION dollars [were] raised to aid Global Citizen in its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty,” she wrote. “I’d like to give my praise and respect to all the speakers, performers and volunteers who donated their time to contribute to making positive change. Every person in the audience at FNB Stadium earned a seat because they generously donated their time to help their community. Now their efforts and the money raised will help improve education, healthcare, sanitation, women’s rights and countless other causes for millions across the globe.”

I felt so much positivity and pride in the audience at Global Citizen: Mandela 100. Madiba, Johannesburg, and all of my African sisters and brothers, we hope we made you as proud as you all make us.  South Africa was an extraordinary trip for me and my family. God bless.

The Global Citizen Festival honored the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela as the late former South African president also had a vision of ending extreme poverty.

“Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life.” – Nelson Mandela

    Yet another thing to mention is that an online business administration diploma is designed for students to be able to efficiently proceed to bachelor degree courses. The 90 credit diploma meets the other bachelor college degree requirements so when you earn your associate of arts in BA online, you will have access to the modern technologies with this field. Some reasons why students need to get their associate degree in business is because they can be interested in the field and want to get the general instruction necessary ahead of jumping in to a bachelor education program. Many thanks for the tips you provide with your blog.
