Superstars of Sports and Entertainment Join Campaign To Raise International Awareness and Funding
The World Summit on Sustainable Development – will bring together tens of thousands of participants, including heads of State and Government, national delegates and leaders from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), businesses and other major groups to focus the world's attention and direct action toward meeting difficult challenges, including improving people's lives and conserving our natural resources in a world that is growing in population, with ever-increasing demands for food, water, shelter, sanitation, energy, health services and economic security.

As government now takes responsibility for providing health care in areas it previously did not reach, non-governmental and community organisations are having to find a new role to play. Many find themselves out in the cold as foreign funders shift their aid in the direction of government. Yet while government has committed itself to providing for neglected communities, NGOs are finding the reality is very different. Despite government's intentions, it often lacks the capacity to reach these forgotten pockets, and NGOs find themselves having to carry out the same function, but this time without the support of foreign aid.
