The President of Arigatou International, Rev. Keishi Miyamoto, once stated that extreme poverty is the most extensive form of violence in the world; and it claims an enormous number of lives worldwide and leaves the survivors with unbearable and endemic suffering. Estimates of 1 billion children across the world live in poverty today; that is one out of every two children. It was because of such severe situations that the Interfaith Initiative to End Child Poverty (End Child Poverty), a global initiative of Arigatou International, decided to develop an Interfaith Guide to equip duty bearers with knowledge, skills and attitudes to help End Child Poverty.
