Event description

Description

Well-spent international aid isn’t about giving hand-outs, but helping people create sustainable communities in which they can take control of their own futures. The world is changing, and many countries are becoming less dependent on aid. But far too many lives are still blighted by extreme poverty, insecurity and inequality.

It is vital that the progress we have made so far isn’t reversed, and that no one is left behind. We all have a part to play in calling for a better world in which everyone can fulfil their potential. What’s your role? Come and find out!
