Arab states

The slogan of 2015 is "Art changes Perceptions, Perceptions change people, People change the world". The organization has created an online community where anyone can post digital images of poverty existing in the Arab world. The action was created in response to the 2000 United Nations Millennium Summit declaration to eradicate extreme poverty throughout the world by 2015. Realizing that extreme poverty still exists, particularly in their own middle eastern countries, in 2012 the El Sayed Foundation created the 2015 campaign, creating an online space where digital images of extreme Arab poverty can be posted and shared. By presenting haunting and realistic images of poverty in this one area of the word, the creators hope that viewers will realize the pervasiveness of extreme poverty throughout the planet and encourage people to take whatever actions they can to help alluvia the problem.
