Global Goals

Global Goals

Last week saw the release of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.  And, Yesterday, the World Bank released its latest official extreme poverty estimates – showing that the proportion of people worldwide living in extreme poverty declined by 65% between 1990 and 2012, to 12.8%.

So... its working. And is proof that community driven, sustainable and long term independent projects are the road to success, and together we're not far off the end! BUT, lets not forget that even though this is a huge achievement, there is still a long way to go. 

Together, we can beat poverty!
