Stand Up Take Action
In affirmation of our commitment to the fight against poverty, VSO Bahaginan is standing united with the United National Systems in the Philippines for this year’s Stand Up, Take Action global campaign running from 16-18 October 2009.
The campaign aims to send a loud and clear message from citizens to leaders of rich and poor countries to take urgent action to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Last year, the Philippines campaign topped all countries in terms of number of people mobilized—3.2 million Filipinos. This year is another chance for you to make yourself be counted.
Stand up, fight poverty in three easy ways:
Fill out the I Vote for MDGs formand submit to the Stand Up Secretariat on or before October 18. Results of this survey will be presented to the presidential candidates in a forum on October 20.
