At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Priyanka Chopra talked about ways to eradicate extreme poverty, and India's effort to end Polio successfully. She further elaborated on the urgency of investing in people and said, "If countries invest in their people, you create populations that other people want to invest in." Priyanka Chopra also spoke about the solutions that can help eliminate poverty. She said, "People like Bill Gates, people like Warren Buffett have shown us that people like that can make phenomenal impact when people just take a little bit out of their immense wealth and help us make that difference." Priyanka also cited India's example of uniting and working together in the current scenario and bringing about a change.
Listen to her as she talks about bringing about a change in the society:
How do you ignite change? Change doesn't happen overnight.. but it can happen by having conversations and asking the tough questions. It can happen by demanding change, as we can see in so many places around the world today. We can make an impact. I truly believe we can. It was such an honor to sit with @moiraforbes at the @worldeconomicforum today to talk about the world's biggest challenges and what we can do to solve them. Thank you @glblcitizen for giving me the opportunity to journey to #Davos2020 to be a part of these powerful moments. #philanthropyatscale
