Take action. See impact.
Unemployment and poverty go hand-in-hand.
That’s why HP and Global Citizen
have teamed up. We share a common vision
and a belief in the power of technology to
positively affect social change.
Global Citizen’s mission is to end extreme poverty by 2030 by inspiring people to take action.
That’s just what happened on September 28, 2013, in New York, when 60,000 people joined Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Alicia Keys, John Mayer to urge world leaders to take action to end extreme poverty by 2030. Another 20.8 million watched the festival by live stream.
This was a festival with a difference. The only way to get a ticket was by getting involved in the movement. The message? Take action. Earn tickets. See impact. The festival was a powerful platform to raise awareness among hundreds of thousands of young people about the many ways they can get involved in eliminating poverty. That’s where HP comes in. HP LIFE e-Learning for Entrepreneurs is a key initiative supporting the Global Citizen movement.
One of the most effective tools to lift people up out of poverty is education. HP LIFE offers aspiring entrepreneurs and small business-owners essential business skills and IT training. Available online, HP LIFE e-Learning is free of charge to everyone with Internet access. Two million entrepreneurs have taken part in HP LIFE since 2007, gaining the tools to help build their own businesses and opening the door to lives full of hope.
