Global Call To Action Against Poverty

GCAP_Logo_EnglishThe Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP) is a growing alliance of trade unions, community groups, faith groups, women and youth organisations, NGOs and other campaigners. They are national coalitions of the Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP) in over 100 countries worldwide.

GCAP is calling for action from the world’s leaders to meet their promises to end poverty and inequality. In this period of European elections, GCAP Europe is particularly focusing on the candidates running for the European Parliament.

In particular, it demands solutions that address the issues of:

  • Public accountability, just governance and the fulfillment of human rights
  • Trade justice
  • A major increase in the quantity and quality of aid and financing for development
  • Debt cancellation
  • Gender equality must also be at the heart of eradicating poverty.

The European Union is the major donor of aid in the World and the European Parliament shares the power of decision.  Call on your MEP candidates to end poverty!
