I was so engaged in working on elections that I set aside and did not remember to post about the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty in a timely fashion.
. The Decade continues so you might still find this of use.
International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
October 17th is one of the key moments of the year when people can come together not only to express their commitment to eradicating poverty, but also their commitment to respecting human dignity. Particularly important is the opportunity it provides to those who experience poverty on a daily basis to have their voices heard. An understanding of their reality changes the perspective on both poverty as well as human rights.
