Governments in developing countries must follow through with their commitment to action through national poverty reduction plans. Strategic approaches to ending extreme poverty should enable public, private and aid resources to be allocated and used.
Access to credit in poor countries can help create sustainable industries that combat poverty, as well as help develop nations.
Aid helps to create favorable conditions for citizens of poorer countries, and catalyzes other resources for ending poverty like private investment and development finance.
Children need education to attain the knowledge and life skills they need to realize their full potential. Equal education helps to break down barriers that prevent many children — and girls in particular — from attending school.
It is important for governments to build health clinics, train health care workers and invest in equipment and medicine so children can grow up healthy and strong.
Access to clean water is essential for every person’s survival. It is important to build school latrines, community water points and organizations to ensure the continued management and maintenance of water points.
Child participation helps children engage in citizenship, express their views and make decisions that will shape their future and influence the people around them.
