At the end 2019 we launched our Poverty Reduction Initiative which focused on decreasing poverty by: 1) increasing the graduation rate of High School students, 2) helping graduates find full-time employment, and 3) waiting until marriage to have children. According to research by Brookings Institute, of the young American adults who followed these three simple rules, only about 2 percent were in poverty and nearly 75 percent have joined the middle class (defined as earning around $55,000 or more per year).
