Our Role as a Global Citizens

because we cant accomplish something this big alone

Help the Poor

  • According to UNICEF, 20,000 children die every day because of poverty
  • 27-28% of children in developing countries are underweight
  • Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names
  • Infectious diseases continue to blight the lives of the poor across the world. An estimated 40 million people are living with HIV/AIDS, with 3 million deaths in 2004.

Number of children in the world---2.2 billion

Number in poverty---1 billion (every second child)

Its sad to think that some children don't have enough food to eat and meanwhile we throw away so much food that we don't eat. I think its our job to help third world countries because children shouldn't have to die just because they don't have food.

Education is also very important to me and a lot of other people, but not everybody in the world has access to it.

Theses are just a few of the global issues that are going on in the world. Theres a whole website with a list of the issues.


UNICEF is a organization that provides help and aid to children living in struggling countries. They get donations from people who want to help.

Maybe my role as a global citizen will be to get involved in something important as this.

This is a video about UNICEF and what they do, its kind of long but has a lot of information.
