In order to transform NDG into the greatest community in the world, one of the first things which must be accomplished is that we have to eliminate poverty from the social landscape and help everyone towards a much higher quality of life.  This includes sufficient income to maintain adequate housing, 3 square, good quality meals/day, sufficient income for the basic necessities as well as some money to put away for emergencies. We agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Mandela's words. We also believe that the entire community should be responsible for helping to lift all those on the lower margins up - that ending poverty should be accomplished by a combined effort of people, businesses, organizations and government. To this end our objective is to promote this initiative to everyone in our community (as well as in the global community) in an effort to get them on board and active.
