What is United Nations? In 1945,
representatives of 50 countries met in San
Francisco USA at the United Nations Conference
on International Organization to draw up the
United Nations Charter. It was ratified by China,
France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, the
United States and a majority of other
signatories. As a result, the United Nations
officially came into existence on 24 October
1945. The United Nations has been working with
international leaders in three major areas -
Human Rights, Peace Keeping, and Sustainable
Development. In September of 2000 at the
Millennium Summit, the largest gathering of world
leaders in history, adopted the UN Millennium
Declaration, committing their nations to a new
global partnership to reduce extreme poverty and
setting out a series of time-bound targets, with
a deadline of 2015, which have become known as
the Millennium Development Goals.
3
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are the
world's time-bound and quantified targets for
addressing extreme poverty in its many
dimensions-incomes, poverty, hunger, disease,
lack of adequate shelter, and exclusion-while
promoting gender equality, education, and
environmental sustainability. They are also basic
human rights- the rights of each person on the
planet to health, education, shelter, and
security. Millennium Development Goals (MDGS) is
a shared vision among all international leaders.
Because of these goals, they all know what
development is about and they all know what needs
to be done.

year after the establishment of the UN. Today,
it has become a global network of hundreds of
thousands of people linked together through 
United Nations Associations in over 100 member
