SUSTAINABLE
DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to transform our world. They are a call to action to end poverty and inequality, protect the planet, and improve the lives of everyone.
In 2015, all the countries in the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It sets out 17 goals, which were developed as a universal call to action.

How are we
meeting the goals?

We want to strengthen the work we are undertaking across Better Lives Foundation to tackle poverty and inequality, the climate emergency, environmental degradation, and to increase prosperity for Sierra Leone.

Our focus is around the six goals below:

Sierra Leone’s four key national goals

Our work is also aligned to the four key national goals below identified by Sierra Leone, emerging from the consultative process and grounded in the developmental state model for this plan period:

Goal 1

A diversified, resilient green economy.

A nation with educated, empowered, and healthy citizens capable of realising their fullest potential.

Goal 3

A society that is peaceful, cohesive, secure, and just.

Goal 4

A competitive
economy with
a well-developed infrastructure.

HOW WE HELP

the three main areas we provide towards

Medical

Deep-seated poverty compels families to make difficult choices between having a meal or getting life-saving medical treatment.

We believe that no one should have to make these choices. Your support provides free medical treatment to everyone walking through the hospital doors in Sierra Leone.

Education

We have adopted schools in Yonibana to provide educational sponsorship to students from secondary to graduate level. Allowing them to have a livelihood and support their future families.

Social Care

Our outreach programmes deliver preventative workshops on health and wellbeing, social care, sex education, grassroots sexually transmitted infections, female genital mutilation and teenage pregnancies.
