This depends on the definition of poverty one uses.
With hope, love, and support of their community and loved ones.

Everyone on Ghana is living in extreme poverty they have to walk 3 miles to get fresh water
There are thousands of Africans that live in poverty. It is estimated that over half of the population lives in poverty.
from the reports I have heard, there are 26,000 people die each day from poverty. About 80% of the people on Earth live in poverty.
According to the National Census, there were 44 million living in poverty in the United States alone. This also takes into account what the government would consider the n…ational income average for middle class incomes at that time. Therefore anyone under that average would have been classed as poor or in the poverty level.
there are aproximately 150000 people living in poverty in haiti.
Don't work for the Money - Patty Hansen The world is filled with the smart, talented, educated and gifted people. We meet them every day. A few days ago, my car was not runnin…g well. I pulled it into a garage and the Young mechanic had it fixed in just a few minutes. He knew what was wrong by simply listening to the engine. I was amazed. The sad truth is, great talent is not enough. I am constantly shocked at how little talented people earn. I heard the other day that less than 5% of Americans earn more than $100,000 a year. A business consultant who specialized in the medical trade was telling me how many doctors, dentist and chiropractors struggle financially. All this time, I thought that when they graduated, the dollars would pour in. It was this business consultant who gave me the phrase, "They are one skill away from great wealth." What this phrase means is that most people need only to learn and master one more skill and their income would jump exponentially. I have mentioned before that financial intelligence is a synergy of accounting, investing, marketing and law. Combine those four technical skills and making money with money is easier. When it comes to money, the only skill people know is to work hard. When I graduated from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in 1969, my educated dad was happy. Standard Oil of California had hired me for its oil -- tanker fleet. I had a great career ahead of me. Yet I resigned after six month with the company and joined the Marine Corps to learn how to fly. My educated dad was devastated. Rich dad congratulated me.. Job security meant everything to my educated dad. Learning meant everything to my rich dad. Educated dad thought I went to school to learn to be a ship's officer. Rich dad knew that I went to school to study international trade. So as a student, I made cargo runs, navigating large freighters, oil tankers and passenger ships to the Far East and the South Pacific . While most my classmates, including Mike, were partying at their fraternity houses, I was studying trade, people and cultures in Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Korea and the Philippines. I also was parting, but it was not in any frat house. I grew up rapidly. There is an old cliche that goes, " Job is an acronym for Just over Broke." And unfortunately, I would say that the saying applies to millions of people. Because school does not think financial intelligence, most workers "live within their means". They work and they pay the bills. Instead I recommend to yound people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn, Look down the road at what skills they want to acquire before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the "Rat Race". Once people are trapped in the lifelong process of bill paying, they become like those little hamsters running around in those little metal wheels. Their little furry legs are spinning furiously, the wheel is turning furiously, but become tomorrow morning, they'll still be in the same cage: great job. When I asked the classes I teach, " How many of you can cook a better hamburger, how come McDonald's makes more money than you?" The answer is obvious: McDonald's excellent at business systems. The reason so many talented people are poor is because they focus on building a better hamburger and know little or nothing about business systems. The world is filled with talented poor people. All too often, they're poor or struggle financially or earn less than they are capable of, not because of what they know but because of what they do not know. They focus on perfecting their skills at building a better hamburger rather than the skills of selling and delivering the hamburger.
