The Millennium Development Goals concern us all. For young people their achievement is even more crucial as we will have to deal with the consequences of not taking action today. Young people make up a disproportionately large part of populations living in poverty so reaching the goals is of the utmost importance to millions of youth – not just in the future, but also today.
We want you all to think about this quote of the American author Edward Everett Hale: ”I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”
By contributing even on a small scale we all leave positive footprints in history. By coming together these footprints can become trails that soon builds up big roads. Our goal is to make a change – because we know that we can!
