Live58 is a movement of people from diverse walks of life who have decided to end extreme poverty once and for all. Through the award winning documentary 58:, Live58 fosters collaborative partnerships with local and global communities to identify tangible ways to participate in ending extreme poverty.

“God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both their lives. God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war. God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them.” ― Bono
