Finish the Race

Caritas Australia/Micah Challenge

Call on the Australian government to finish what we started when we committed to halve extreme poverty by 2015.

In the lead up to the federal election in 2013, and with the 2015 goal line for the Millennium Development Goals fast approaching, Australia has an opportunity to save and improve the lives of millions of the world's poorest people. We're calling on the Australian Government to finish what we started when we committed to achieving these goals.

Some things are worth finishing.

Caritas Australia as part of Micah Challenge is calling on our supporters to join this campaign and sign a pledge of commitment to be involved.

Who is Micah Challenge

Micah Challenge is a global movement that brings together Christians from all different denominations and backgrounds as well as over 50 Christian aid and development agencies, united in their shared belief that addressing poverty is integral to their faith. Micah Challenge seeks to do its part in addressing the problem of poverty through advocacy and education.

Why We Work With Micah Challenge

Caritas Australia chooses to work in solidarity with others wherever possible, because we know that by standing together we are stronger than we are on our own. Over the past few years we have worked together with Micah Challenge to encourage the Australian Government to provide more and better aid, to reduce maternal mortality, and to recognise that addressing climate change is essential for ensuring that progress on reducing poverty is not undermined.
