End Child Poverty!
September 4th October 2008 saw thousand's of young people, families, and supporters of the End Child Poverty campaign come together to ensure the government keeps its promise to End Child Poverty by 2010.
The proportion of children living in poverty has grown in the last three decades. The government has two years to ensure its promise to halve Child Poverty and end it by 2010. The End Child Poverty campaign is a comprehensive initiative that ensures the development of children for the future in all aspects of their lives.
Mujibul Islam, Chair of Muslim Council of Britain's Youth Committee was amongst thousands of demonstrators ensuring that this promise was fulfilled. `Thousands of people have gathered at Trafalgar Square. This shows how the public is concerned about the millions of children living under the poverty line and wants to make a real change. It is imperative that we all, regardless of our background, not only support but ensure that the government keeps its promise' he said.
