On the surface, our lives may seem worlds away from those of a mother in Haiti, a farmer in Mozambique or a seamstress in Vietnam. But the problems we face — and the dreams that drive us — are no different. We all share the same hope for a safe, secure and healthy future. And we share the indelible impact of war and conflict, economic instability and disease — all caused or made worse by poverty.
In this ever-shrinking world, the shape of our tomorrows is entwined with what happens in every corner of the globe. What happens “there” affects us here: our health, our jobs, our environment, our security, our way of life. How we embrace these global challenges will determine our future.
One Shared World is an AED campaign to raise awareness of global poverty and generate dialogue about what we, as Americans, can do to help tackle it.
Whether you want to be better informed about development assistance, find tools to encourage others to get involved or discover a personal way to do more, we invite you to become a part of One Shared World.
Let this Web site be your starting point.
