Our Motto

he motto of the organization lies embedded in the famous quotes of the said personalities: “Some of these (Asian) countries, like India, far from needing a bigger population, would be better off with fewer people.” Jawaharlal Nehru – Indian Prime Minister 1889 – 1964

“One of the most serious challenges to human destiny in the last third of this century will be the growth of the population.” Richard M. Nixon – US President 1913 – 1994

“Short of nuclear war itself, population growth is the gravest issue the world faces. If we do not act, the problem will be solved by famine, riots, insurrection and war.” Robert McNamara – President of the World Bank 1916 – 2009

“Those who fail to see that population growth and climate change are two sides of the same coin are either ignorant or hiding from the truth. These two huge environmental problems are inseparable and to discuss one while ignoring the other is irrational.” James Lovelock – environmentalist b1919

“…democracy can not survive overpopulation. Human dignity cannot survive it. Convenience and decency cannot survive it. As you put more and more people into the world, the value of life not only declines, it disappears. It doesn’t matter if someone dies. The more people there are, the less one individual matters.” Isaac Asimov – author 1920 – 1992

“Unlike plagues of the dark ages or contemporary diseases we do not yet understand, the modern plague of overpopulation is soluble by means we have discovered and with resources we possess. What is lacking is not sufficient knowledge of the solution but universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem and education of the billions who are its victims.” Martin Luther King – clergyman and activist 1929 – 1968

“Many children face a prospect of a world which has been devastated of its forest cover and lost many of its species. Would it not be worthwhile to reinforce that enormous investment in the future, that grand gesture of hope in the future by chipping in just a little bit more, that one penny per day for family planning facilities? To insure that our children inherit a world worth living in. A world where population growth has been slowed to zero, with equity and fairness for all citizens on this planet, and where our environments are safeguarded and restored.” Professor Norman Myers – environmentalist b1934

“You have to educate girls and empower women, and that’s the most powerful leveraging factor. And when that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices
