Together WE Can Create A Better World ...

At the Millennium Summit in September 2000 at the United Nations, ALL of the world's leaders agreed "to spare no effort" in working to fulfill the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015. These shared goals help us take a giant step forward in global cooperation to create a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. Help join the campaign to remind our leaders about their PROMISE.
