Millennium Development Goals
Soul Waves Radio has come to the end of its journey. It’s been a very interesting and exciting time and we were glad to share so many interviews with you. We will be publishing pieces from the archive, until the archive moves to Jesuit.ie and then you will be able to access them there. We thank you for all the support you gave us over the years.
In 2000, 189 nations made a promise to free people from extreme poverty and multiple deprivation. The pledge became the eight Millennium Development Goals, which were to be achieved by 2015. They are to reduce hunger, achieve universal primary education, promote gender equality, reduce child mortality, improve maternal health, combat disease, ensure environmental sustainability and develop a global partnership. In this piece from 2012, Lorna Gold, policy officer with Trócaire, talks about how these goals were going to be achieved.
