"STAND UP AGAINST POVERTY" - A UNITED
NATIONS MONTH LONG CAMPAIGN
A million Filipinos and more to STAND UP
For one whole day, from 6 p.m. of October 15
until 6 p.m., October 16, 2006, over one million Filipinos from
different sectors of society will join millions of others worldwide
in an ultimate pledge of commitment to make poverty history by 2015.
Within a 24-hour period, people from all over the world will
physically and symbolically stand up to communicate their desire to
fight poverty. This is also expected to set an official Guinness
World Record. The event is part of the UN Month celebration in 2006.
Launched in 2002 by the United Nations Millennium
Campaign, STAND UP is a global advocacy effort to have the greatest
number of people to ever stand up against poverty and for the
Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The campaign informs, inspires,
and encourages people's involvement and action towards the
realization of the MDGs. It further supports citizen's efforts to
hold the government accountable for the millennium pledge.
The MDGs are a set of time-bound, concrete, and
specific targets to combat extreme poverty and human deprivation and
lay the foundations for sustainable development by 2015. These goals
are: 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; and develop
global partnerships for development.
The Philippine campaign dubbed Tumayo Tayo:
labanan ang Kahirapan, Tuparin ang MDGs, together with partners from
government, civil society, NGOs, business sector, aims to raise
awareness on the state of poverty in the country
