Faith Communities' Promise Renewed: Ending Preventable Child Deaths and Supporting Mothers
December 1, 2013
For many people and faith institutions, the welfare of mothers and children amounts to a sacred duty. It is also enshrined in the year 2000 Millennium Development Goals. One effort to translate these goals into reality was reflected in the launch at Georgetown University of a movement and partnership called A Promise Renewed. Leading partners in this effort are UNICEF, USAID, Religions for Peace, and CIFA (Center for Interfaith Action on Global Poverty). The promise to future generations has been formulated in straightforward terms as Ten Promises to Our Children.
