PartnersCampus Network Collaborates to End Poverty

Author: 
Susie Meyer, Membership Officer

During the week of October 15, the PartnersCampus Network united forces to end poverty for the International Day to Eradicate Poverty. Inspired by an idea from Mercedes Nogues, President of PartnersCampus UdeSA in Argentina, each of the 10 participating PartnersCampus Chapters organized an activity in their local community to respond to the first of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals: “No Poverty.”

Below, we highlight a list of the diverse ways in which our volunteers supported their communities and brought our hemisphere one step closer to eradicating poverty.
