In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, Kids & Teens Resource Centre keeps carrying out activities that envisions a secured future where young people are empowered to contribute to the sustainable development of their communities.
Kids & Teens Resource Centre in its 16 years of existence, has supported global moves right from the time of Millennium Development Goals to the present era of Sustainable Development Goals. Most of the organization’s activities such as Children Hygiene and Sanitation Education (CHASE), Knowing Series, Children Cultural Fiesta, Children Caravan etc. have largely promoted SDGs (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16 & 17).
In this Global Goals week, K & TRC has carried out an empowerment program for adolescent girls and young women in one of her adopted communities; Ibulesoro Community which promote SDG 1- No Poverty. The community adolescent girls were empowered with life building skills to make healthy decisions. It was great to also note that four under privileged young girls who were enrolled for an empowerment program six months ago by Kids & Teens Resource Centre with Bimmy Brown Fashion Academy were presented sewing machines during this community program by Khessed Receptive, USA. For the young women in the community, they were made to participate in several skills acquisition training.
Knowing that SDG Vision 2030 requires the effort of every stakeholder across the globe, Kids & Teens Resource Centre remains unrelenting in contributing her own quota in making the world a better place for all.
