So far Australia's contribution towards overseas aid is only 0.21%, or 21 cents per $100, of our Gross National Income, increasing extremely slowly every year. Australia is ranking 21st in contributing with other countries such as the united kingdom contributing up to 0.7% of their GNI. We, The GPA (Global Poverty Awareness) Foundation would like to increase this number to at least 0.5% of our Gross National Income by 2025. This goes towards helping those who are struggling in poverty. As of now, the number of people falling into poverty is increasing rapidly and most of this is due to COVID-19. If we can increase Australia's contribution this would help lower the number of those going into poverty and will greatly help others around the world.
