Alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals
Through our sustainable agriculture and infrasctructure projects, we plan to build the resilience of the poor and those in vulnerable situations and reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters. We also strive to
reduce poverty as a whole, increasing income equality and social inclusion.
Through the use of different types of sustainable agriculture and educational workshops, residents will be able to grow more of their own food at a higher quality and quantity. Other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment will also be implemented.
Substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship - ensuring through our Saturday school project and other educational projects that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood
development, care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education.
Our agroforestry project and training centre will focus on women’s empowerment, involving and helping elderly nuns make a living as well as hiring women to work in and around the center - giving them equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to ownership and control over land and other forms of property, financial services, inheritance and natural resources, in accordance with national laws.
We will promote development-oriented policies that support productive activities, decent job creation, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation through NTFPs, and encourage the formalization and growth of SMEs through our responsible tourism projects.
Through reducing the need to burn forests and croplands, the number of fires should lessen - raisingthe quality of air in the area. We will also raise awareness and educate people where we can on the dangers of burning, air pollution, adaptation to climate issues and how to reduce your impact.
We will promote the implementation of sustainable management of the forest, halt deforestation, restore degraded forests and substantially increase afforestation and reforestation, endangered species protection, environmental education and research responsible tourism.
