International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
Building a sustainable future: Coming together to end
poverty and discrimination
As part of UN Millenium Development goals, on the 17th of October we celebrate the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty has been observed every year since 1993, when the United Nations General Assembly, by resolution 47/196, designated this day to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries.
