“We are putting our efforts together to make sure that the common person on the street knows what the MDGs are. In our activities as CSO’s, we realized that a lot of organizations still do not even know the Millennium Development Goals [MDG]. So our efforts are to make sure that government will be able to step up in what is going to happen in September this year,” she stated.
