"If those in power, wherever we are, whichever country but also at whatever level in society
that we are leaders, began working together - we would eliminate abject poverty,
and ensure that poverty becomes history in twenty years from now.
It's a moral duty of any of us as human beings."
- José Ramos-Horta
