100% for the children, we work where no one else does
100% for Children and UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
The UN Sustainable Development Goals create the framework for all our projects, and we work to ensure progress in the fields that the goals address. But we cannot reach the Sustainable Development Goals if we do not have a civil society with us. In our projects, we convey the SDGs to children and adolescents in Denmark, Ghana, and Kenya. As an example, we created the Poetic Empowerment project, which was based on the Sustainable Development Goals to create dialogue and cultural exchange between children living in resp. Denmark and Ghana.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 17
PARTNERSHIP FOR THE GOALS
100% for the Children initially worked with charity, we now work with development. Our experience is that development goes hand in hand with global partnerships. This applies to collaboration with our partners in Denmark, Ghana, and Kenya, but also to the involvement of the people affected by the projects. Therefore, we always work to create relationships that can sustain themselves, so we can maintain the projects together.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 4
Giving children a safe everyday life with a solid & safe framework is a focus that is continuous in our projects. The school as an institution can offer that framework, all children have the right to education, regardless of whether they are disabled, orphaned street children, or live in a landfill.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 10
The children we work with come from very poor families and are often disabled, in a culture where poverty and disability are considered inferior and unworthy. Too many street children and disabled children experience being deprived of their political voices. We, therefore, want to educate them about their rights.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 3
GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
For children to thrive in school they need energy. They get their energy from their diet. All too often the meal they get at school is their only daily meal. Together with our partner organizations, we establish food programs so that the children get at least one daily meal. To ensure that disabled children also have access to health, we work closely with health clinics to help parents who cannot provide their children with the necessary care.
