President Attends Initiative for Global Development's 2006 National Summit
President George W. Bush addresses the Initiative for Global Development's 2006 National Summit in Washington, D.C., Thursday, June 15, 2006. A partnership between business and civic leaders, the initiative works to reduce global poverty. "The facts are these: Across the globe, more than a billion people live on less than a dollar a day. That should be a troubling statistic to all Americans," said the President. "They lead lives of hunger, they lead lives of desperation. Every day is a struggle just to survive. That struggle ought to inspire us here in America. It's inspired you. It ought to inspire all our citizens." White House photo by Kimberlee Hewitt
