In September 2015, world leaders at the UN unanimously adopted Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development , one of the most ambitious and important global agreements in recent history. The agenda, which came into effect on 1 January 2016, aims to set the world on a path towards a better future for all by 2030. At the heart of the agenda are the 17 SDGs (sometimes referred to as the Global Goals) and their 169 targets. The SDGs are a set of priorities and aspirations to guide all countries in tackling the world’s most pressing challenges, including ending poverty and hunger; protecting the planet from degradation and addressing climate change; ensuring that all people can enjoy prosperous, healthy and fulfilling lives; and fostering peaceful, just and inclusive societies free from fear and violence.

Africa for SDGs; My Goals Foundation commits with a sense of urgency to an Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) towards the realization of the SDGs initiative.
