Micah Challenge calls Christians to pray and act for world’s poor:
Micah Challenge is a global coalition of Christians holding governments to account for their promise to halve extreme poverty by 2015. We are establishing a global movement to encourage deeper Christian commitment to the poor, and to speak out to leaders to act with justice.
2010 is a year of great challenge and opportunity in the fight against global poverty. It’s ten years since the nations of the world made promises to the poor amongst us and Micah Challenge are bringing 100 million people together in a worldwide cry that the poor and our promises to them cannot be forgotten.
With a vision of gathering people together to commit to remembering the poor and living a life that helps bring justice, Micah Challenge want to ask our leaders to do the same. The worldwide Micah 2010 campaign will begin on 10/10/10 – a day when literally millions of Christians worldwide will be mobilised to pray, promise and press their leaders. Visit micahchallenge for more information.
We have 40 national campaigns across the globe, which carry out local mobilization, training and advocacy work. They also provide national coordination of global campaign moments, such as Micah 2010.

Our inspiration comes from the Old Testament prophet Micah, who wrote, « He has shown you O man what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. » (Micah 6v8)
