International Theme for 17 October 2014

Dear friends,

We are happy to tell you the international theme for 17 October 2014, World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty, chosen with the International Committee for October 17 and the United Nations:

"Leave No One Behind:

Think, Decide and Act Together Against Extreme Poverty"

"Leave No One Behind": means putting an end to discrimination based on social disadvantage, and ensuring that no one is forgotten in our efforts to build a more equitable world.

"Think, Decide and Act Together Against Extreme Poverty": means deciding to do what it takes to ensure that people living in extreme poverty become the primary partners in programmes to overcome poverty and promote development. Only by working together will we be able to ensure that no one is left out.

Tell us about your projects for this 17 October.

Thank you for everything that you share with us, whether through the website, or by post or electronic mail.
