There’s an opportunity on the horizon. And we could make history. In just a few weeks, leaders from around the world are heading to Northern Ireland for one BIG meeting: the G8 Summit.
They’ve got a lot to do, but we’ve got to make sure two items get bumped to the top of their list: food and transparency.
If they act, millions could escape extreme poverty for the long-term. And do you know what could push them to tackle these two poverty-fighting issues right away?
This is a huge chance. These leaders are rarely together at the same time so adding pressure now really will make a difference. Add your name and urge them to take action.
Our petition reads:
Dear World Leaders,
This year, commit to fight chronic malnutrition and unleash a transparency revolution. By acting now, you can help transform millions of lives, put power into people’s hands and set a course to end extreme poverty by 2030.
Why do we need our leaders to tackle transparency? So people can see exactly how their governments are spending money.
And why food? Because Africa deserves to grow and thrive – feeding itself, lifting millions out of poverty and preventing chronic malnutrition for millions of children.
I’m heading to the summit in less than a month to push our leaders to act. I’d love to take your name with me.
