Imagine a world without discrimination. A world without poverty. A world where we could all take time to learn from each other and build each other up.
We get it – you might be rolling your eyes right now. You might be questioning how attainable this vision really is. But we get it; we really do: This vision is possible. And it all starts with you.
This Thursday is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Every year since 1993, the United Nations has designated this day to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries. Fighting poverty is the current that runs through the Millenium Development Goals and the post-2015 agenda. If we work together, we can kick poverty to the curb.
Here’s how: Investing in girls is the key to eradicating poverty and bettering the lives of girls, their families, and their communities around the world. Providing girls with leadership skills and including them in the decision-making process is one of the major tools to spark economic and social change.
