The deadline for the realisation of the UN millennium goals is fast approaching. By 2015, the eight agreements drawn up by the UN to reach improved living conditions in the developing world have to be achieved. Beyond Borders Media
(BBM), a Dutch communication agency, travelled to eight developing countries across the world to see the progress that has been made so far. The aim was to provide insight into one goal per country and how different Dutch NGOs are contributing to the realisation of the particular goal. Somalia is one of the countries Beyond Borders Media brought into picture and they visited HIRDA in recognition of its efforts towards the fourth millennium goal: ‘Reduce child mortality’.
