The Millenium Project

"The Millennium Project was commissioned by the United Nations Secretary-General in 2002 to develop a concrete action plan for the world to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and to reverse the grinding poverty, hunger and disease affecting billions of people." Click the above link to check out all of the many ways this worldwide project attempts to combat poverty.

Also, look closely at the website and you'll see a picture of our very own graduate students led by Dr. Karen Starks. A few years ago, they led a fundraising effort to purchase malaria nets!
