34 Million Friends of the United Nations Population Fund will continue to urge grassroots support (with one dollar or more) for the United Nations Population Fund both in the USA and abroad
Description/achievement of initiative

As always, 34 Million Friends of the United Nations Population Fund will continue to urge grassroots support (with one dollar or more) for the United Nations Population Fund both in the USA and abroad. UNFPA is at the very core of MDGs 3, 4, and 5 and thus at the very core of the Global Strategy. The ultimate vision of 34 Million Friends is to educate US citizens and the world at large about the centrality of gender equality in all realms but particularly in the areas of education and health to any hope for people and the planet. Between now and November 15, co-founder Jane Roberts will be giving over 20 talks on the subject of "Women Population and the Millennium Development Goals" to university and civic groups. This campaign has garnered over US $4.2 million and 34 Million Friends send a check to UNFPA every quarter.
