United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Developed by the United Nations (U.N.), these 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to transform our world, ultimately improving lives and spreading prosperity throughout a healthy planet. At its heart, these SDGs are an urgent call for action by all countries — developed and developing — in a global partnership.
With the understanding that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth — all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
While our mission specifically focuses on goal #1 of ending poverty, at Mentors International, our programs address many of the other SDGs as well, particularly Goals 1 – 8.
