Goals for a Better Future

In 2015, the United Nations, through their 2030 Agenda, released a list of Sustainable Development Goals to provide direction on how to tackle the world’s most pressing issues. This list is advertised as “17 Goals to Transform Our World”. Although these goals represent many areas in which the world needs to improve, their applicability varies by context and by scale. As part of our mandate, we focus on the goals pertaining to water, health, and education. In our communities, these fundamental needs are dire. We believe that water, health, and education are what is needed to transform lives and fuel sustainable self-growth and development.

Basic Needs for Lasting Change

We believe that focusing on these three areas enables communities to develop autonomously – in a way they see fit for themselves. Our aim is to help impoverished communities take control of their futures. We advocate for dignity, agency, and self-determination. We aren’t saviours, we’re partners.

For the communities we work in, water, health, and education represent the cornerstones of a better life. Our philosophy is simple:

Clean water sustains life.
Good health enriches life.
Education fosters hope.
When you have hope, you plan for the future.

Without Water, there can be No Health  •  Without Health, there can be No Education  •  Without Education, there is No Hope.
Each one provides the foundation for the next. The latter enhances the former. They’re all interconnected.
