MDG

After all that YouTube-ing, of course I had to feel somewhat productive. I dunno what prompted me to search this up, but I typed in "MILLENIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS" in the Search bar of YouTube.

I ended up with two awesome presentations.

One is music vid of "Tayo Tayo Rin", the Millenium Development Goals" Anthem. It features a lot of our very own talented singers, singing a beautifully penned song about achieving the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). Though the video has English subtitles in order for it to make sense to an international audience, it's the Filipino lyrics that are actually more beautiful, more poetic, more sincere.

TAYO TAYO RIN - Various OPM artists



In addition to that, this other presentation is a 7-minute video that also tells us about the MDGs:

The Millenium Development Goals are:
1. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
2. Achieve universal primary education
3. Promote gender equality
4. Reduce child mortality
5. Improve maternal health
6. Combat HIV AIDS and other diseases
7. Ensure environmental sustainability; and
8. Develop global partnership by year 2015
