POVERTY AFFECTS THE LIVES OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE,
TWO OF THE WORLD’S BEST-PAID FOOTBALL PLAYERS.
What’s more surprising: the fact that
we now live in a world where almost a quarter of the population
live in absolute poverty? Or the fact that for the first time ever,
we possess the wealth*, technology and knowledge* to create a poverty
free world in less than a generation?
Ronaldo and Zidane are supporting educational
activities in Kosovo and Albania as part of the UNDP “Teams to End
Poverty” campaign. Improving* access to education is one way we
can end poverty. Educational programmes and vocational training*
will make it easier to create and find jobs, improve health care,
farming and trade*, as well as developing opportunities for men,
women and children.
We’re closer to ending world poverty
than you might think. Find out how you, your company or organization
can make a difference by contacting UNDP or by logging onto www.undp.org/teams or www.netaid.ord.
