indian child begs for money in new delhi

in september of two thousand, world leaders set eight goals for bringing millions of people out of poverty. these became known as the united nations millennium development goals. among them: cut in half the number of people living on less than one dollar a day and halt the spread of aids and malaria.

the goals also include improving survival rates for pregnant women and young children, and educating all children. working for equality between women and men and dealing with environmental needs like safe water are also included.

the target date for reaching the goals is two thousand fifteen. we are now halfway to that date and a united nations progress report says results have been mixed.

for example, it says the share of people in extreme poverty has fallen from nearly one-third to less than one-fifth. that was between nineteen ninety and two thousand four. if this progress continues, the u.n. estimates that the poverty reduction goal will be met for the world as a whole and many areas.
