As we embark on this new school year I would like to tell you about this year’s student-elected philanthropy: Achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Goal 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
Goal 2: Achieve universal primary education
Goal 3: Promote gender equality and empower women
Goal 4: Reduce child mortality
Goal 5: Improve maternal health
Goal 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
Goal 7: Ensure environmental sustainability
Goal 8: Develop a Global Partnership for Development
There will be many events throughout the year that have to do with one or all of the MDGs, so look out for them!
If you have any ideas or you are interested in becoming involved with planning, I would to hear from you! E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the goals: http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/.
The world made a promise, let’s help keep it.
