Nominate A Hero For Millennium Development Goal

Teachers Without Borders, promote to MDG HeroDo you know an organization or person in your community doing extraordinary work to achieve the MDGs? Tell the global community about them so others can learn about their work. Teachers Without Borders is recognizing MDG Heroes who are leading by example.

MDG Hero.
During the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000,189 world leaders issued the Millennium Declaration, which was later translated into the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The declaration included the world leader's promise to bridge the development divide and end extreme hunger and poverty, eradicate illiteracy, empower women and achieve gender equality as well as reduce child mortality, improve maternal health, combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases, ensure environmental sustainability, and develop global partnerships for development - all by 2015.

Teachers Without Borders (TWB) is a 501(c)3 international nonprofit organization focused on supporting the world's teachers through connection to information and each other. TWB recognizes that the only way to achieve the MDGs is by creating awareness in the community, and celebrating those individuals and organizations that are contributing to such achievement in whatever way they can.

An MGD hero is a person or organization that is doing extraordinary work to help make the MDGs a reality, and in the process of doing so, they represent a shining example of what is possible for everyone else to do -they lead by example.
Your Hero will win:

* a featured spot on Teachers Without Borders (TWB) website and newsletter
* a certificate for extraordinary contribution toward the MDGs achievement
* a flip camera

Who is your MDG Hero?
There are many people and organizations in Nigeria already doing extraordinary things to help achieve the MDGs by 2015 for all Nigerians, like teaching a group of farmers how to plant their crops more efficiently, organize HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns, give disadvantaged communities medical support, work with local or international NGOs to create innovative programs that will help advance the state of all Nigerians, and hopefully people all over sub-Saharan Africa.

Do you know a person or an organization in your community doing extraordinary work to achieve the MDGs? Tell the global community about them so we too can learn about their work.
