VESL was very pleased, alongside our link organisation in Kerala (VeSSS), to receive a grant from UK Aid to run the a VESL devised initiative called ‘Active Global Citizens Programme’. The Active Global Citizens programme encourages past VESL volunteers to run a workshops for young people in the UK. During these workshops young people will learn about the millennium development goals and will be challenged to carry out a project that makes a difference to the world. Over the course of the year we shall be working with over 200 young people from ten schools across the UK.
The UN website for the millennium development goals has more info – www.un.org/millenniumgoals
The European Commission have put together a great pdf document describing the ‘EU Contribution to the Millennium Development Goals’
The DFID [Dept. for International Development] website is also a good website for reference to the millennium development goals – www.dfid.gov.uk/global-issues/millennium-development-goals
