The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is held annually on October 17. This day is an opportunity to acknowledge the effort and struggle of people living in poverty. It is a chance to listen to the concerns of those of us who are suffering and to take a moment to recognize that poor people are the first ones to fight against poverty.

Each year, details about this annual event will be added to the Community Calendar
