GCAP Newsletter: Global Day of Action (25/09) & Int’l Day to End Poverty (17/10) October 2018 Wednesday October 31st, 2018
First of all, I want to congratulate you for a successful Global Day of Action 2018! On 25 September, you were part of million people in 1,248 cities & communities in 143 countries who came together in 1,666 actions across the world.
In the past month, we’ve mobilized together not only on 25 September, but also 17 October 2018 – the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty – an important day for the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP).
The number of people living in poverty remains very high – even while the percentage of people living in extreme poverty is decreasing. The latest numbers show that the target of SDG 1 to eradicate poverty by 2030 will not be achieved.
