The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP) is a global event marked every year on 17th October. It is a day for awareness, activism and action against poverty. Arigatou International — End Child Poverty uses this opportunity to organize multiple processes to cast a spotlight on child poverty and to mobilize actions to address it. We anchor our IDEP actions upon our broader ‘Together We Can End Child Poverty Worldwide’ campaign, which mobilizes community awareness, activism and advocacy. Among other actions, during IDEP October 17th, we promote awareness on child poverty, through online messaging.
