Advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals
On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. We recognize the disproportionate impact each goal has on women and girls, and also the role women and girls play in addressing each of these goals and the power they each hold to help us achieve our Vision. We consider each of these goals in our decision making and programming.
