Projects

Sustainable development goals

At the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all United Nations member states to end poverty, improve health and education, reduce inequality and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. Through our 25 projects in India, we support eight of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

End poverty in all its forms everywhere

Through our skills development projects, we teach vulnerable women vocational skills to encourage employment and entrepreneurship.

End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

At our community centres and boys’ and girls’ hostels, we provide nutritious meals to children every day.

Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

Through our projects, we raise awareness about sexual and reproductive health to help break taboos and stigmas. We also educate especially men in the slum communities about the harmful use of alcohol and drugs.

Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

At our community centres and boys’ and girls’ hostels, we work to ensure that all children have access to education. Through our skills development projects, we teach women vocational skills to encourage employment and entrepreneurship. We also provide computer training to young people living in rural areas to increase their chance of getting a job. Furthermore, we support a learning centre for special education, which provides education and training for 180 children with special needsy

E-WEB-Goal-05

Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

We work to raise awareness about the rights of women and girls to reduce trafficking, child marriage, violence and other forms of gender discrimination. Through our skills projects, we encourage women to learn a profession and get a job despite resistance from the men in their families. In our girls’ hostel, all girls learn karate to increase their confidence and self-defence skills.

Ensure equal access to safe and cheap drinking water, as well as to suitable sanitation, hygiene and proper toilet conditions for everyone.

In the slums, we build women-friendly toilets, which ensure access so that girls and women have a safe place to maintain hygiene, as well as pull sanitary napkins from a vending machine. In addition, we teach the children at our Community Centers how to wash their hands and make it a daily activity to wash their hands before eating.


E-WEB-Goal-08

Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

By providing computer and skills training, we aim to reduce the rate of unemployment, especially amongst the most vulnerable. We also work to put an end to child labour in slum areas and encourage parents to prioritise education for their children, which are also important aspects of this goal.

E-WEB-Goal-16

Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels

We raise awareness in the slums about the rights of children and women to reduce the occurrence of abuse, exploitation and violence. We also guide families in obtaining proof of identity so they can access basic government services such as free education and healthcare.
E-WEB-Goal-17

Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

We work closely together with other NGOs and build strong partnerships with our supporting foundations and corporate partners to maximise the impact of our work.
