Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), an initiative of the United Nations, are promoted as global sustainable development objectives. They replaced the Millennium Development Goals, which expired at the end of 2015. SDG’s are valid for the period of 2015 to 2030.


When evaluating the Millennium Development Goals (2014-2015) worldwide improvements have been recorded. However southern Africa remains behind. Help is still needed. Thanks to people and organizations that support us, we can continue our work!

No poverty
