In 2000, the U.N. organised the Millennium Summit in New York, a great gathering of 189 heads of state. They voted the Millennium Declaration of 8 objectives for development, to galvanize unprecedented efforts for meeting the needs of the poorest. These efforts target an improved situation by 2015.
- Eliminate extreme poverty and hunger
- Ensure primary education for all
- Promote gender equality and women's empowerment
- Reduce child mortality under five years of age
- Improve maternity care
- Fight against HIV/AIDS, malaria and other sicknesses
- Ensure a sustainable environment
- Set up a world partnership for development
We are proud to note that since the creation of Abantu Zambia, the projects we support in Zambia meet these Millennium Objectives perfectly.
