International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is an annual observance that aims to promote awareness and action against poverty across the globe. This global event focuses on the importance of eradicating poverty and destitution to create a sustainable and inclusive world. The observance emphasizes the significance of empowering people living in poverty and enabling their active participation in the decisions that affect their lives, thus directly contributing to the global fight against the poverty crisis.
October 17 was declared as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty by the United Nations General Assembly in 1992, inspired by the initiative taken during the same year by Father Joseph Wresinski, founder of the international movement ATD Fourth World. In India, poverty remains a pressing issue, with millions of citizens still living below the poverty line. International Day for the Eradication of Poverty presents an essential platform for addressing the contributing factors, such as lack of access to quality education, healthcare, and employment opportunities, to alleviate the hardships faced by the poor in India.
To observe International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, several events and initiatives are organized in India, involving various stakeholders such as government bodies, non-governmental organizations, and communities. These events aim to raise awareness about poverty-related issues and to mobilize resources and support for the eradication of poverty in the country. By participating in and supporting these initiatives, the people of India can contribute to the worldwide efforts to eradicate poverty and create a better future for all.
