8 Goals for Africa

The 8 Goals for Africa song is part of an awareness and advocacy campaign developed by the United Nations System in South Africa on the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). End poverty by 2015 is the historic promise that 189 world leaders made at the UN Millennium Summit in 2000 when they signed up to the Millennium Declaration and agreed to meet the MDGs by 2015. The MDGs are an eight-point road map with measurable targets and clear deadlines for improving the lives of the world´s poorest people. Ten years later our leaders are meeting again on September 20 in New York to review the progress. It is up to us to make sure that world leaders keep their promise.
