Today, October 17th, is the 'International Day for the Eradication of Poverty'!
The United Nations' (UN) International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is observed on October 17 each year since 1993. It promotes people's awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution worldwide, particularly in developing countries.
The theme for this year is: "Coming together with those furthest behind to build an inclusive world of universal respect for human rights and dignity", as this year it was felt it was important to highlight the importance to recall the fundamental connection between extreme poverty and human rights, and that people living in poverty are disproportionately affected by many human rights violations.
We certainly appreciate how today's theme is so closely aligned with our own work in Africa and India, as we continue to work hard with communities there to tackle abuse, poverty and human right violations. .
World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on 16 October in honour of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organisations concerned with food security, including the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
The theme behind the day aims to stop world hunger by 2030, one of the UN's inspirational Global Goals. .

Since 2012, 11 October has been marked as the International Day of the Girl. .
The day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.
This year's theme is 'A Skilled GirlForce'. Today's generation of girls are preparing to enter a world of work that is being transformed by innovation and automation. Educated and skilled workers are in great demand, but roughly a quarter of young people – most of them female – are currently neither employed or in education or training.
Of the 1 billion young people – including 600 million adolescent girls – that will enter the workforce in the next decade, more than 90% of those living in developing countries will work in the informal sector, where low or no pay, abuse and exploitation are common.
On 11 October, International Day of the Girl, the UN aims to work alongside all girls to expand existing learning opportunities, chart new pathways and calling on the global community to rethink how to prepare them for a successful transition into the world of work.
Thank you to all our supporters who help us to empower girls in Africa and India to tackle issues such as these and help the girls to have fulfilling lives!
Today is World Mental Health Day, where on the 10th October each year, the topic is recognised by the World Health Organisation.
The day provides an opportunity for all those working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide. This year's theme is young people's mental health and mental health in a changing world.
It's great to see this year's theme encompass all cultures around the world, in an area we feel very strongly about!
