Peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, access to justice for all, and effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels.
“Peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, access to justice for all and effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.” SDG16 is at the heart of Help a Child’s vision. In our community development activities, we rely on key principles such as participation and inclusion. Everybody needs to be able to join and be part of the change needed. Across ethnic, generational or other divides, we focus on building trust, reconciliation and a sense of togetherness. Another key principle is sustainability, the ability of communities to face the future after a project ends.
