International Day for the Eradication of Poverty in
Days to go:
International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is a global observance that focuses on the importance of providing adequate social protection and support for those in need. It aims to raise awareness about the issues surrounding poverty and to inspire action to eliminate it around the world. The day also promotes the value of empowering individuals and communities by ensuring their access to essential resources, education, and opportunities.
The United Nations General Assembly officially declared the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty in 1992, in response to the momentum generated by the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty in 1987. In Australia, poverty continues to be an issue affecting many communities, with approximately 13.6% of the population, or over 3 million people, living below the poverty line. This includes a significant number of children and elderly citizens who often face difficulties in accessing social services, adequate housing, and education.
In Australia, International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is observed by various government, non-governmental organisations, and community groups. Activities and events such as conferences, workshops, and public discussions are organised to raise awareness of the issue and to promote solutions to reduce poverty. Community members also play a key role in supporting those in need, through initiatives such as volunteering at food banks and other charitable organisations. The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty takes place annually on October 17th, serving as a reminder to all Australians of the importance of addressing the issue of poverty and supporting those who are struggling.
