Meaningful posters

Saw these posters yesterday in Amsterdam. They were put up by NCDO (Nationale Commissie voor internationale samenwerking en Duurzame Ontwikkeling. Activiteiten: National Commission for International Cooperation and Sustainable Develpment), this development organisation which campaigns to implement the Millennium goals set out by the UN in 2000.

"For the price of this (FIFA) World Cup ticket a child in Ivory Coast can go to school for a year."

"This ball went through more check-ups than a pregnant woman in Ghana."

Wonderful messages. Like I said before, if people spent as much time, effort and money on combating poverty as football, there wouldn't be such great poverty
