Micah Challenge "is a global Christian campaign. Our aims are to deepen our engagement with impoverished and marginalised communities; and to challenge international leaders, and leaders of rich and poor countries, to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, and so halve absolute global poverty by 2015!" [1]

Directors

"Micah Challenge is facilitated by the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) and the Micah Network. The Council for Micah Challenge has ten members drawn from the leadership of Evangelical Alliances and Christian relief and development agencies from around the world. The chair is Rev Joel Edwards, General Director of Evangelical Alliance UK.

"The other Board Members are: Tehmina Arora (India), Andy Atkins (UK), Steve Bradbury (Australia), Loida Cariel (Peru), Jane Furniss (Micah Network), Paul Mususu (Zambia), Geoff Tunnicliffe (WEA) and Peter Vander Meulen (USA). Ken Morgan serves as the ex-officio treasurer of the Board.
