On the occasion of International Day of DemocracySep 15, 2013Ladies and Gentlemen, Distinguished Guests, Roundtable Participants, It is a great pleasure to be here this evening on the occasion of the International Day of Democracy. Allow me first to express my great appreciation to the Kuwait Graduates Society for proposing to co-organise this event with the UNDP Kuwait Country Office. The Kuwait Graduates Society has a proud tradition of engaging in discourse on fundamental issues pertaining to the growth of democracy and human rights in Kuwait. It is very fitting that this roundtable discussion on “The role of civil society organisations in strengthening democratic practice” is held here at the Kuwait Graduates Society, a civil society organization that has made such a significant contribution to intellectual debate in Kuwait over the past decades.

- #SDG1: NO POVERTY - Countdown to Rio 2016 10 days "I was born in Belford Roxo, which didn’t have any infrastructure. When it rained, my family and I would huddle together in one room, as the rest of the house was full of rainwater. My friends were in an even worse situation. Among the miserable, I was the poor one; at least, I was not beaten at home. As a teenager, I sold magazine subscriptions, and lived amongst those who read, awaking in me the desire to read too. I began to live in a different environment, which stimulated in me the desire to take my university entrance exams. I tried for three years before passing, managing on my fourth attempt. Today, I have a masters, a doctorate and I even give classes to students who—like me—came from a difficult life. I created the John Rawls Laboratory so those in need could live in the research world. The best part of being a teacher is knowing that I'm helping my students fulfill their dreams." – Dalton Franco, 37 years old ---- #ODS1: ERRADICAR A POBREZA "Cresci em Belford Roxo, sem nenhuma infra-estrutura. Quando chovia, eu e minha família nos amontoávamos em um só cômodo, porque os outros estavam cheios de goteira. A situação dos meus amigos era ainda pior: entre os miseráveis, eu era o pobre – e, pelo menos, não apanhava em casa, ao contrário deles. Quando era adolescente, me tornei vendedor de assinatura de revista e passei a conviver com pessoas que liam, o que despertou em mim a vontade de ler também. Comecei a viver num meio diferente e isso estimulou em mim o desejo de passar no vestibular. Tentei por três anos antes de passar, mas consegui na quarta tentativa. Hoje, tenho mestrado, doutorado e dou aulas para alunos que, como eu, vieram de uma vida difícil. Criei o Laboratório John Rawls para que eles possam viver o mundo da pesquisa. A melhor parte de ser professor é saber que estou contribuindo para que meus alunos conquistem seus sonhos” – Dalton Franco, 37 anos #HumansOfRio #HumansOfMyWorld #Rio2016 #EstaciodeSa Laboratório John Rawls Universidade Estácio de Sá PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) Rio 2016 SDG Action Campaign 2 hours ago
