Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to bring about an awareness of poverty to this generation as an enemy to the world which is at the core reason for hunger, child labor, Infant mortality, and illiteracy. Almost three-fifths of the world’s extreme poor are concentrated in just five countries: Bangladesh, China, the Democratic Republic of Congo India and my beloved country Nigeria. I want the world to kick against poverty together.
It's all part of making a better world.
The world will be a better place when people leave above $1.9 per day there will be little or no hunger, child labour and infant mortality, and illiteracy. This will greatly improve the well being of the global community from the current horror of have 800 women die every day for childbirth-related issues due to lack of money to access basic quality health care service.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by firstly, children from ages a month to 5, and thirteen who will have a better future ahead of them will less pain. Secondly; women who will have access to good health care services and childbirth will no longer be a death sentence to them.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Zero child labor
An almost zero infant mortality and women's death due to childbirth.
Zero global illiteracy rate
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
The vision of the world bank is to eradicate poverty by 2030 and I am putting in my effort from my position within my community, as the UN envoy on youth Jayathma says; the little impact we make contribute to a global change. So I will record the lives impacted in my communities by my contribution and note what percentage of the poor has been alleviated above $1.9 per day every year.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
