"On this day we recommit to think, decide and act together against extreme poverty -- and plan for a world where no-one is left behind. Our aim must be prosperity for all, not just a few." - Ban Ki-moon
Every year on 17th October World Day for Poverty Eradication is celebrated throughout the world to commemorate the people who are grasped by the likes of poverty. First recognized in 1992, the day inspires people to take adequate steps to eliminate poverty and join various programs related to the event. Besides that, the day also acknowledges us with the lifestyle of people who fall under the line of poverty.
Currently, there are millions of people who fall under the line of poverty. These people are living a life being deprived of their basic rights, and are facing the darker side of life. But amongst them there are many who are willing to use their expertise to escape from the likes of poverty.
This year the day primarily focuses on building a sustainable future by eliminating poverty and discrimination. For this, we constantly need to push people living in poverty to actively participate in social programs related to poverty eradication. By doing so, they can learn more about communities, lifestyles, human rights and moreover engage themselves towards a better and sustainable future.
