#globalgoals – 1. No Poverty – Ss Look to Learn Thinking Critically #sdgs #OurGlobalClassroom

This afternoon 5/6J we are going to concentrate on Global Goal 1 – No Poverty

“In this new century, millions of people in the world’s poorest countries remain imprisoned, enslaved, and in chains. They are trapped in the prison of poverty. It is time to set them free. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. And overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life. While poverty persists, there is no true freedom.”

Nelson Mandela
