Scarlett: ”It has been very fun these past few weeks learning with my friends every Thursday. Every Thursday we get together with our friends and learn about history/geography/and poverty and hunger. Every month we learn about a new button from the Development Goals. This month was the first Development Goal which was a pot of hot food which means Eradicate Poverty and Hunger. I was supposed to work on a tool this week to fix this goal.”

Nigel: ”Hi, my name is Nigel Reynolds and I am a part of a group that is called Global Outreachers. We try to reduce the population of people who are in poverty and lots of other things. Some of the thoughts I have for the Millennium Challenge Goals are:
1. That we try to spread the word on the Goals so more people can try to help us.
2. We can introduce our idea to the President of the United States and since it is voting time the President could talk about it in his debate.
3. We could have officers so the President of our group will have someone to rely on such as the Vice President of our group.
4. Finally, we can join together with some major groups like Salvation Army and Goodwill to help reduce hunger and poverty.”
Erica: ”Button 2 (Eradicating hunger) is a very popular goal, not just for America, but a lot of other continents, countries, and cities as well. Eradicating hunger is giving food to those who don’t have any or they’re poor. It’s interesting to see a small group develop to make a big difference in the world.”
