Some Lessons from Brazil to Fight World Poverty

Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva announced that, during his visit to New York in September, the governments of Brazil and Chile will meet with other presidents to discuss the creation of an international fund to help the poorest countries develop.

Lula affirmed that, with little money and successful examples,
it is possible to provide citizenship to less privileged individuals.


“What is important is for us to begin to share all our
experiences. We have many government policies in Brazil, and other countries
certainly have many as well,” Lula declared.

According to Lula, someday
the countries of South America and Latin America will cease being examples of
poor regions and become examples of developed regions, “where all children
attend school, where everybody has a chance to work, and where everybody can eat
at least three meals daily.”

In his speech, the Brazilian President
pointed out that, by the end of his term in office, 11 million families that
live below the poverty line will be receiving government assistance.


“I believe in the working capacity of the Brazilian people, and
I am convinced that we shall succeed in fulfilling the promise we made to the
Brazilian people.”
