Together we can end child poverty worldwide.

Message from Rev. Keishi Miyamoto, President of Arigatou International, on the 10th Anniversary of the Interfaith Initiative to End Child Poverty

“Going All Out to End Child Poverty”

On June 16, 2012, over 470 religious leaders and others representing diverse faith traditions, NGOs and United Nations agencies gathered from over 64 countries in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to pursue the vision of a world where no child lives in poverty. There, determined to take new action together to end the scourge of child poverty, they joined us in welcoming the launch of the Interfaith Initiative to End Child Poverty. Deeply moved and grateful for their commitment, we have continued to support the initiative for the last 10 years—which have sped by as the world continues to change in dramatic ways.

Together We Can End Child Poverty
