Tubbercurry Europe Direct hosts the EYD Day for Worlds Best News

The World’s Best News is an initiative which brings together stories of positive change from around the world. It shows that there are people everywhere who are making a difference, and are empowering others to do the same. Around the world every day there is progress taking place. Extreme poverty has been halved in the past 15 years, 91% of children in developing countries are now enrolled in school, and girls and boys now have unprecedented levels of equality when it comes to education. These are just some of the good news facts that never seem to make the mainstream news agenda.

On September 17th The World’s Best News newspaper will be launched by Dóchas and it will be available in locations around the country. Hundreds of people will take to the streets to spread the positive news that development is working, and to celebrate that things are getting better, and that there is hope for the future. The world has set a challenge to itself” to eliminate extreme poverty by the year 2030. Though this may seem like an incredible task ahead, if we look at how far we have come, we can feel confident that we must keep going, that we must keep fighting for what is right, for happier, healthier lives for people all over the world, for global justice, the end to inequality, and a better future for the planet. Dóchas means ‘hope’ and that;s just what this is all about. Hope. Find out more about The World’s Best News, follow on Facebook.
