Last week we reported on the work of some of our grassroots activists in Kingston & Surbiton. Yoga Bowers has now posted a fantastic video of his recent meeting with his MP Edward Davey, which you can view in two parts below. Yoga covered a lot of ground in the short meeting, which concluded with his MP agreeing to contact Andrew Mitchell, the Secretary of State for International Development to ask him to prioritise child and maternal health, and also to speak at a special 1GOAL campaign assembly at a local school (see our earlier post).
Yoga’s detailed preparation for the meeting clearly paid off, but hopefully this example will demonstrate that many MPs are keen to work on international development and pleased when their constituents raise this crucial issue!
