Partners of the Americas (Partners) welcomes Pan American Day on April 14, 2021. This year, we celebrate the 131 years since nations throughout the Americas have formally come together to inspire collaboration and progress as well as encourage mutual understanding of peoples from all nations.
Every day, Partners of the Americas collaborates with individuals and organizations around the world to eradicate poverty. The coronavirus pandemic this year has hurt communities experiencing poverty the hardest, yet we are finding ways to work through it to achieve social and environmental justice for all. This International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, we’re highlighting the steps our programs, projects, and members have taken to end poverty during COVID-19.
