In 2015 United Nations member states signed a pledge to eliminate global poverty worldwide by 2030 through the achievement of 17 goals. These include ensuring every child has access to quality education, eliminating hunger, tackling climate change, and significantly improving access to healthcare, clean water, and sanitation. SOS Children’s Villages fully supports these ambitions and is contributing towards their fulfilment by improving children’s lives. You can read more about this here.
SOS Children’s Villages has put the most disadvantaged children at the heart of its Strategy 2030, with the central message: No child should grow up alone. The strategy directly relates to the global Sustainable Development Goals in key areas such as poverty, inequality, education, health, social and child protection, and decent work.
This briefing paper is a tool that puts forward pragmatic recommendations on how policies, programmes and services around the Sustainable Development Goals can reach children who have lost or are at risk of losing parental care.
