Blog Action Day 2008 – Poverty

Today (October 15) is Blog Action Day.

We all understand clearly that poverty ‘exists’. So where I stand in the fight against poverty, what I have done, and what I could do? I was just thinking of these simple questions and I find no answer within me.

Poverty is something that the mankind has seen from the days we first had wealth. So this is not another new crisis. But the so call big headed economist and policy makes of the world had failed badly in finding a solution to eliminate poverty from the world. They have just kept the deadlines extended from 2000 to 2020 to whatelse. But nothing has changed in a big scale.

But, still we can make a change, if every individual things of way he/she can help in this path of eleminating poverty. As an individual, I don’t have proper plans upto now what I’m going to do about this. But I’m going to use this as an opportunity to read on this, learn on this and then try to execute those what I can.

I do invite everyone on this is Blog Action Day, to read and adopt some of these things and action you can do as individuals.

This video prepared for the Micah project in Australia highlights some of the actions mentioned above, so if you haven’t the energy to read, just click play!

With the hope of seeing a world without poverty,

Blog Action Day! On October 15th

On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind – the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.

I thought this is something I should participate and I’m in. I’ll post some thing on my blog that is related to environment on October 15th, and if you also do blog, post yours as well, and in any language too. Lets us make our environment better…!
