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, Community and Economic Development to provide a more comprehensive self-help approach for families to break the cycle of poverty and aid dependency.
