Sustainable Development...a Global Movement

 

In 2015, the United Nations signed the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of

17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) providing economic and social development training and support, ending poverty, eradicating hunger, improving health, promoting equitable economic growth, ensuring education for all, and supporting inclusive, peaceful societies.

Overture International proudly supports and participates in the Sustainable Development Goals. Our work focusing on the highest risk families and communities, ready to solve their own challenges, directly contributes to this ambitious agenda.

Our ultimate goal for families and communities…independence from aid.

Overture’s approach to Sustainable Development combines Social Development, Community Sustainability, and Economic Empowerment to provide a more comprehensive self-help approach for families to break the cycle of poverty and aid dependency.

Although we believe that vulnerable families and communities are central to every one of the SDGs, our vision for families and communities aligns directly with Goal #1.
