Regional Support Programme 2009
As part of Article 13’s United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and Millennium Development Goal (MDG) commitment to respect ‘human rights’ (principle 1) and contribute to the ‘alleviation of poverty and Hunger’ (MDG 1) we have chosen Care International as a regional charity that we would like to support. Our strategy is driven by one of our 12 KPIs for our 2009 UNGC commitments, which is as follows:
Target 1: Donate our annual donation to an organisation working towards poverty alleviation (charity to be decided as a team).
Target 2: Make a difference to one poverty stricken region and assist in access to basic necessities.
Care International’s ‘mission is to create lasting change in poor communities and put money where it is needed most: more than 90 pence in every pound goes towards our poverty-fighting programmes. That’s one of the highest rates among all the UK aid agencies’.
Article 13 Actions:
Article 13 will give (through an established CARE project) a range of different ‘gifts’ which cover different areas in an aim to target those who need the ‘gifts’ most. Article 13 will receive a detailed explanation of where the ‘gifts’ have gone and towards what project goals. By donating a range of ‘gifts’ we could provide a range of support covering education, health, education, human rights, and others. This would also allow us control over what and how much we support over a period of time, in-keeping with our aim as well as in collaboration with CARE.
