Will You Remember the World’s Poorest This Election?

The Poverty Question

Will you remember the world’s poorest people this election?

Questions are important! Unless we ask the right questions, we will never find the right answers.

Micah Challenge and Make Poverty History think the parties and their leaders are forgetting to ask (and answer) THE POVERTY QUESTION. It’s a life and death question for millions of people! So we’re going to ask it for them! If we can mobilise thousands of people on one day toask the same question to the politicians then we can force them to come up with some answers. We need your help!

1. Ask yourself The Poverty Question today!

How can we ask our leaders this question if we’re not asking ourselves? Consider the world’s poorest people when you cast your vote on 21 August. Click here for policy updates from the major parties.
