Australia Aid - MDG #1 - End Extreme Poverty

Time to celebrate the Millennium Development Goals

The UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon declared the Millennium Development Goals 'the most successful anti-poverty movement in history'. Share these graphics if that gives you a warm fuzzy feeling.

In the year 2000 world leaders agreed to coordinated our efforts to achieve 8 gutsy, Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), including trying to halve extreme poverty by 2015.

Today the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development are being signed in New York by another bunch of world leaders which amongst other things plans to go the whole hog and completely eradicate hunger and extreme poverty. It also incorporates important environmental and equality goals like combating climate change and giving women equal rights.

It’s all very exciting, but before we jump into the next 17 steps for a better world, it’s worth celebrating the fantastic achievements we humans have made to help each other, through the MDGs. As an Australian I’m so proud that we’ve contributed in some small way to this, a real sign of our progress as humans, by our investment in Australian aid. Thanks to everyone of you who over the last 15 years has given money or lent their voice to help this united fight against poverty. More people must know that we are making great progress and together we can make it all the way!

Celebrate our collective achievements in the fight against poverty and inequality.
