The Millennium Development Goals

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are the world's time-bound and quantified targets for addressing extreme poverty in its many dimensions-income poverty, hunger, disease, lack of adequate shelter, and exclusion-while promoting gender equality, education, and environmental sustainability. They are also basic human rights-the rights of each person on the planet to health, education, shelter, and security.

Hello Rigoberta, its a pleasure to write this words.

I invite you to read the principles of the Bahai Faith, a indenpendent religion for this time, you will like what it teachs, take it only as a information for you, I admire your person for the fight you do in favor of the poor people. keep on the good work.  If you want more information abou the bahai faith visit   www. bahai.org   God Bless you.

In proclaiming the pivotal principle of the oneness of humankind, Bahá'u'lláh founder of the bahai faith  outlines a body of social precepts which He says must guide the future development of society. Strong emphasis is placed on the abolition of prejudices of all kinds. There is, Bahá'u'lláh insists, but one human race; notions that a particular racial or ethnic group is in some way superior to the rest of humanity are without foundation. Women and men are fully equal in the sight of God, and society must reorganize its life so as to give practical effect to this reality. The era has dawned, Bahá'u'lláh says, for the establishment of justice in human affairs, and considerable attention is given in His writings to the responsibility of society to ensure economic justice among its component groups. Closely related to these concerns is the obligation of parents to educate their children and the assertion that it is the responsibility of society to make certain that the means for universal education are provided. Every human being must be trained to "look into all things with a searching eye" so that truth can be independently ascertained 30. The resources of both science and faith must be tapped if the capacities of the world's peoples are to reach the levels needed to address the problems of the present hour. Reliance on consultative decision-making "bestoweth greater awareness and transmuteth conjecture into certitude"--thereby providing the means for effecting meaningful change where social progress has been inhibited.31 The adoption of the principle of collective security and the establishment of institutions of governance at the global level will ensure permanent stability and peace in international relations.Thus, Bahá'u'lláh speaks definitively of life, its meaning, and the afterlife. He addresses both the individual in search of spiritual understanding and a harassed human race in need of tranquility, direction and hope. The moral and spiritual transformation of society, the relief of the diverse peoples of the earth from conflict, injustice, and suffering, and the birth of a progressive and peaceful global civilization are not only possible, Bahá'u'lláh says, but inevitable.

"This is the Day", Bahá'u'lláh proclaims, "in which God's most excellent favors have been poured out upon men, the Day in which His most mighty grace hath been infused into all created things."32 Every human being is the beneficiary of this process, and his "whole duty...in this Day is to attain that share of the flood of grace which God poureth forth for him."33 The history of humanity as one people is only now beginning. "Great is thy blessedness, O earth, for thou hast been made the foot-stool of thy God, and been chosen as the seat of His mighty throne."34 "Soon will the present-day order be rolled up, and a new one spread out in its stead. Verily, the Lord speaketh the truth, and is the Knower of things unseen."35
