End poverty by 2015. This is the historic promise 189 world leaders made at the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000 when they signed onto the Millennium Declaration and agreed to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The United Nations Millennium Development Goals, MDGs, are an eight-point road map with measurable targets and clear deadlines for improving the lives of the world's poorest people. World leaders have agreed to achieve the MDGs by 2015.
It’s up to us to make sure leaders follow through on their commitments. The "United Nations Millennium Campaign" supports and inspires people from around the world to take action in support of the Millennium Development Goals. Join the Millennium Campaign and be part of the generation that puts an end to poverty.
