WHAT ARE THE GLOBAL GOALS?
The Global Goals* also known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs – are a set of universal goals and targets adopted by 193 UN member states that outline a vision for the future for people and the planet. They replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which expired in 2015. The MDGs were launched in 2000 to make global progress on poverty, education, health, hunger, and the environment.
The Global Goals will be used to frame the UN member states’ agendas and policies over the next 15 years until 2030.
The Global Goals have been put forward as a ‘transformative’ agenda that incorporates the needs and rights of all people and groups, including those who were left behind by the MDGs. The goals are also universal and will apply to all countries.
The new Global Goals are far broader in scope than the MDGs, and now include economic, environmental and social aspects of development.
The core challenges of quality healthcare, quality education, and gender equality are tackled more robustly in the new Global Goals than in the MDGs. Other important issues are included, such as ending violence against children, ending gender-based violence; building peaceful, inclusive societies; decreasing inequality, and much more emphasis on environmental factors that affect global sustainability. Gender equality, and the importance of the empowerment of girls and women, also play a key role in the goals.
The Global Goals repeatedly state the importance of ‘leaving no one behind’. For Humanity & Health Foundation, this is critical as we strive to reach the most excluded and marginalized people (both youth and adult).

As a member or network partner of HHF, it is crucial you understand the Global Goals, so we are crystal clear of HHF’s ultimate goal.
To ensure we are productive and able to deliver, information and knowledge are essential.
Hence, I will personally advise, that you take advantage of information posted on our Tools and Resources page and also check the HHF website for more information and resources.
In this part of the continent, people learn and advance by asking and working based on accurate knowledge.
Be free to ask questions, it is better to have accurate information than inaccurate information and assumptions.
Keep this in mind –
(You can only Give what you have, You cannot deliver based on another person’s knowledge, In short, Your Knowledge determines your Horizon).
Limited Knowledge, Limited Vision, Limited Capabilities.
We are going to work in areas where most of the people have limited information and vision (though they think they know and understand), hence it’s imperative to be fully equipped.
