One Dream Foundation New “Mentality Shift” Measures

In the years past the world has seen Africa has a dark continent “never again. One Dream Foundation needs to develop a global partnership to compete in the 21st century. The targets in the global partnership for development goal include a new approach to radical education that elevates the importance of it globally, a research coming from Africa instead of always seeing it as the lost continent that must be helped by "advanced" societies (Joe Brewer).

Eradicate extreme hunger and poverty. Globally, the number of people living in extreme poverty is falling, but there are large variations in progress between regions. Asia is making good progress, but there is little movement elsewhere and sub-Saharan Africa is going backward.

The world already produces enough food, but the key to eradicating hunger is to ensure that ordinary people in the developing world can get access to it and that it’s affordable. Poverty is the principal cause of hunger.

Achieve universal primary education. Number of girls out of school in Africa is the highest in the world (23m).

Promote gender equality and empower women. Having more educated women with greater rights could make the single biggest positive difference to reducing poverty, the rate of childhood diseases and death and the spread of AIDS in developing countries.

Reduce child mortality. Thirty years ago, one in five children in the world died before their fifth birthday. This has now been halved to less than one in ten. Better access to vaccinations and other basic health services and improved living standards have contributed to a steep decline in global deaths among infants and children over the past 30 years.

Improve maternal health. Every year, more than half a million women die from complications in pregnancy or childbirth. Almost all of them would still be alive if they had access to a skilled midwife or doctor in childbirth and effective emergency care for women who have complications.

Combat HIV and AIDS, malaria and other diseases. In Africa, in 2003, some 26.6 million people were living with HIV, 3.2 million people became infected, and AIDS killed 2.3 million.

• Ensure environmental sustainability. Many of the world’s poorest people depend on natural resources for a healthy diet, clean water, shelter, energy, and medicines. What’s more, these people are often most vulnerable to disasters and hazards such as flooding, landslides and pollution brought about or exacerbated by environmental degradation
