    Descriptive info: About the MDGs.. What are the Millennium Development Goals?.. The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were introduced to encourage the international community to stop talking about making a difference in the developing world but to join forces and do something about it.. They were agreed at the United Nations Millennium Summit in September 2000 and nearly 190 countries have signed up to them.. The Goals range from halving global poverty and hunger to protecting the environment, improving health and sanitation and tackling illiteracy and discrimination against women.. Alongside the Goals, 18 targets were also drawn up to give a tangible number of improvements to aim for within a fixed period of time, and to make it more practical to measure the progress.. The  ...   The Eight Millennium Development Goals:.. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.. Achieve universal primary education.. Promote gender equality and empower women.. Reduce child mortality..

  • Title: INCLUDE EVERYBODY - Poverty
    Descriptive info: Its education and health systems have been decimated and no accurate statistics about disability now exist.. We know, however, that because of war violence, land mines, measles, polio and other diseases caused by disrupted vaccination services, a high proportion of Sierra Leoneans have disabilities.. Since many disabled people end up scratching a living on the streets, any programme to help people out of poverty in Sierra Leone would miss the most vulnerable if it did not include disability.. An integrated training and employment  ...   unemployed disabled people learned skills such as blacksmithing and marketing and were then supported to start their own businesses.. One group, some of whom used to live on the streets, started a tool making cooperative which has been so successful that it won a government contract to supply agricultural implements.. Their success shows that when people with disabilities get the right training and support, they can radically change their own circumstances and help meet the first Millennium Development Goal: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger..
