Whether they exist as sporting clubs, day care centres, P&C's, neighbourhood centres or lobby groups they play an invaluable role.

The Millennium Development Goals: the fight against global poverty and inequality
The Millennium Development Goals are agreed targets set by the world's nations to reduce poverty by 2015.
These include halving extreme poverty, getting all children into school, closing the gap on gender inequality, saving lives lost to disease and the lack of available health care, and protecting the environment. These are achievable commitments to improve the well-being of the world's poorest people.
