What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

The 17 SDGs are integrated —that is, they recognise that action in one area will affect outcomes in others and that development must balance social, economic, and environmental sustainability.

We are proud to support ten of the 17 sustainable development goals.

GOAL 2: Zero Hunger
We have a 3-step feeding programme, that provides school meals for more than 2,000 primary school students.  Alongside this, we have developed our first school farm to reduce the reliance on bought food.  Plus, provide additional income for the school.

GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-being
We promote good health and wellbeing through the thoughtful consideration of our lunch programme, by providing mental health and wellbeing support to children, parents and teachers and have an active safeguarding policy.

GOAL 4: Quality Education
We actively follow and support the national curriculum in Kenya and have trained and employed two full-time primary school teachers.  As sport is difficult without the facilities in many Kenyans schools, we also encourage sport and fitness and run a local football academy.

GOAL 5: Gender Equality
All of our programmes support equally boys and girls, including our full bursary programme.

GOAL 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
Each of our schools is kitted out with full water harvesting systems to ensure they have enough water throughout each school term.

GOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
We provide work for the local community through our school farm and cleaning teams.

GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
We have contributed infrastructure to more than 20 primary schools and built one entire secondary school.  Providing vital buildings and safe space for over 20,000 children

GOAL 13: Climate Action
Our volunteer house is run waste-free and our school farm is 100% organic.  We also run regular talks with GreenThing Kenya to educate the wider communities on the importance of sustainable living.

GOAL 17: Partnerships to achieve the Goal
We have worked hard to develop partnerships with all of our communities plus other NGOs and government organisations.  Together we can acheive much more, poolig our resources and budgets.
