  • You Can Be the Generation to End Poverty (No Pressure!)
A call to action for the millenium generation: end poverty in the year 2030. At the event at the World Bank's headquarters in Washington DC, President Jim Yong Kim and UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon met with young global leaders (Ashish J. Thakkar, Mara Group and Foundation; Chernor Bah, Chair Global Education First Initiative; Hugh Evans, Founder & CEO Global Poverty Project; Nargis Shirazi, Co-founder WO-MAN foundation) to share stories of inspiration and hope. The event ended with a mass "selfie" by the audience - as well a selfie that included the UN and World Bank leaders.
