Kristina Crawford, Assistant to the Head of Sixth Form at St Ninian’s High School, has just been appointed as a Global Poverty Ambassador. She was whisked down to London last week to meet Bill Gates and learn more about her new role. As one of 70 Ambassadors in the British Isle, she will be raising awareness of the reality of extreme poverty – and help us to understand what we can do to help eradicate it.
Today Tynwald is considering a report from the Overseas Aid Committee. At a time of cutbacks in services on the Island, there is pressure to reduce what we give to those in other countries. At the moment we give 0.06% of our Gross National Income, less than 10% of that recommended by the United Nations. We look forward to supporting Kristina in the presentations she will be making.
