The Millennium Development Goals

In September 2000, world leaders came together at UN Headquarters in New York to adopt the United Nations Millennium Declaration, committing their nations to a new global partnership to reduce extreme poverty by the deadline of 2015.

These time-bound targets have become known as the Millennium Development Goals.

Gorta's programmes embrace the UN Millennium Development Goals which challenge all of us to respond to tackle poverty, hunger, disease, lack of shelter and exclusion – while promoting gender equality, healthcare, education, environmental sustainability and economic opportunity.
