International Day of Families 2014: Families and Development Goals

DSC_6633

The 2014 United Nations International Day of Families will be observed on May 15, 2014. The theme of this year’s celebration is ”Families Matter for the Achievement of Development Goals”. The day will also be used to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the International Year of the Family.

According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the twentieth anniversary of the International Year of the Family (2014) offers an opportunity to refocus on the role of families in development; take stock of recent trends in family policy development; share good practices in family policy making; review challenges faced by families worldwide and recommend solutions.

Owing to rapid socio-economic and demographic transformations, families find it more and more difficult to fulfil their numerous responsibilities. Many struggle to overcome poverty and adequately provide for the younger and older family members. It is also more and more difficult for them to reconcile work and family responsibilities and maintain the intergenerational bonds that sustained them in the past.
 
In response to these trends, the preparations for the twentieth anniversary of the IYF will focus on exploring family-oriented policies and strategies aiming mainly at confronting family poverty; ensuring work-family balance and advancing social integration and intergenerational solidarity. The preparatory process is to accelerate progress in family policy development; demonstrate its relevance for overall development efforts and draw attention to the role of different stakeholders in achieving these goals.
Global Educators for All Initiative and her growing network of Millennium Development Ambassadors will use the opportunity of this year’s event to advance the call for empowering families for the realization of the development goals. We stand on the common grounds that the family is the school of sustainable development and human development begins from the womb. We emphasize the need to strengthen marriage and family and call on families to make the global development goals to become “Family Development Goals”.
We urge government across the world to make sincere commitment to establish Ministries for Family Affairs, introduce family education in schools as well as emphasize the importance of marriage and family in the realization of development goals. If every family is able to achieve the development goals, our world will immediately become a globally developed world.
Let us realize that human beings are members of one global family under God and the development of all people should be the concern of everyone. Surely, our families matter in the achievement of the development goals and we must do everything to make it happen. Millennium Development Ambassadors are called upon to work to strengthen families for the realization of the development goals. If no where at all, let us begin to celebrate our families and let us pass on the message that development begins from the family. Developed families make developed communities that contribute to developed nations and a globally developed world. Global development begins from local family development.
