We are optimistic

As a non-government organization we embrace the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, signalling that the world was “all in” on the 2030 Agenda. Since then we have mobilized multi-stakeholder initiatives to push the SDGs forward. With our Ntengwe staff, volunteers and supporters doing so much in our districts, we don’t think poverty, human rights violations and inequality stands much of a chance.
