Take One Action Against Poverty

zidaneUNDP asked you to share your story with them & inspire others!

The aim was to show the people behind all these small and big actions that help end poverty world-wide. People were asked to smile, take a photo of themselves in action, upload it onto Facebook and tag UNDP. The description of the photo had to start with "My One Action against poverty is ___", including name and location.

You could vote for your favorite story about doing good in a community, about empowering people, building resilient nations, volunteering in soup kitchens, donating clothes, buying fair-trade-products or recycling waste!

The photos with the most likes and tags won one of five prizes. The winning entries can be seen on the Take One Action Against Poverty webpage.

Ended: December 5, 2011.
