Join our free global briefing call - Voices from Africa on the MDG's
Next week marks a historic moment in the fight against extreme poverty. World leaders are gathering in New York to discuss progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. It's a golden opportunity for us to urge our leaders to do more to honour their promises to the world's poorest people.
Learn more about what took place at the summit, and what you can do to make noise to end extreme poverty by joining us on Thursday, 23 September, for our next free Faiths Act Global Briefing call: Voices from Africa on the MDGs.
The call will take place at 13:00 EDT, 18:00 BST, 20:00 UTC.
Our speakers are uniquely equipped to speak to ways we can all help fulfill our promise to the world's most vulnerable people and how communities on the ground in Africa are experiencing the impact of the MDGs.
The call will feature a dialogue between Faiths Act Fellow Alum Pritpal Kaur Riat and Charles Abugre Akelyira, the United Nations Development Programme's African Director on outcomes from the UN MDG Summit. Pritpal will also speak to an advocate for interfaith cooperation to fight malaria as well as a Faiths Act supporter from Uganda.
By learning about the issues and making a noise in your community, you will join people around the world in directing the international community's attention to the plight of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people. We look forward to hearing from you on the 23rd.
