The Movement to End Poverty. was a joint action of the Make Poverty History and Micah Challenge Coalitions, for all Australians who believe we can end extreme poverty.
Here’s what you said to our political leaders:
Since 1990, aid has helped to reduce extreme poverty, including almost halving the number of children around the world who die before their fifth birthday – 14,000 fewer children dying every single day.
Let’s help make poverty history by giving our fair share of aid – just 70 cents in every $100 of Australia’s national income by 2020.
As a step towards contributing our fair share, the Government must keep its promise to increase aid to 50 cents in every $100 dollars of national income by 2016 and the Opposition must match this commitment.
