In simple words, we can say that Eradication of poverty means to eliminate or remove or erase poverty. If we eradicate poverty through various means then we can create equality all over the world.
On October 17 of every year, The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is celebrated all over the world. United Nations in 1992 officially recognized it under resolution 47/196 with the motive of promoting awareness among the people about need to eradicate poverty from all the countries, mainly in developing countries.
In 2000 Millennium Summit, leaders of the world committed among themselves that by the end of the year 2015 they will cut by half the number of people living in extreme poverty (people who have income less than one dollar a day).
The eight Millennium Declaration Goals include: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger Achieve universal primary education Promote gender equality and empower women Reduce child mortality Improve maternal health Combat HIV/AIDs, malaria, and other diseases Ensure environmental sustainability Develop a global partnership for development
This day is considered as an opportunity where we can acknowledge the struggle and efforts of those people who are living in poverty. The main objective of celebrating this day is to make the voice of the poor heard. It’s not only Government or social organizations responsibility to remove the poverty, but it is also a major responsibility of every person.
“Working together out of poverty” This highlights the importance of a truly global anti-poverty place, where both developed and developing countries can participate actively.
In the end it is necessary to eradicate poverty if we want to see a beautiful world tomorrow. It’s not only government responsibility to erase poverty but also a responsibility of all individuals who are thinking about a better tomorrow.
Africa has the greatest proportion of people living in extreme poverty more than 40 percent or roughly 300 million people living on less than $1 a day. Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rate of undernourishment in the world, with one third of the population below the minimum level of nourishment. At least one million people in Africa die from malaria each year, 90 percent of these deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa.
