Thanks to everyone who attended Transfiguration’s 2010 U2charist — an Episcopal Eucharist featuring music of the rock band U2 and a message about God’s call to rally around the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). We raised over $1,600 which will support the NetsForLife Inspiration Fund – a partnership for Malaria prevention in Africa, empowering communities to eliminate malaria by providing life-saving prevention training and long-lasting insecticide-treated nets. (View Transfiguration’s 2009 U2charist service video).
The MDGs are eight goals to be achieved by 2015 that respond to the world’s main development challenges. They are drawn from the actions and targets contained in the Millennium Declaration that was adopted by 189 nations-and signed by 147 heads of state and governments during the UN Millennium Summit in September 2000.
The eight MDGs break down into 21 quantifiable targets that are measured by 60 indicators.
