Global Sustainable Development Goals

Since our inception, Bring Hope is proud to have aligned our mission and strategies as an organisation with nine of the 17 development goals and we will continue to work towards these goals to reach a more harmonious, improved existence for those we serve by 2030.

Through the tireless work of our staff, volunteers, ambassadors and our partnerships with organisations all over the world, our efforts contribute to the following SDGs:

SDG 3: Good Health and Wellbeing

Safeguarding the health of those we serve is crucial to Bring Hope, and we do this through our aid donations, programmes and partnerships. We believe that all people should have the right to adequate and timely healthcare and acknowledge that this should be the most basic provision.

OUR IMPACT:

  • 2.2 million people in need helped across the globe
  • $138 million worth of goods have been distributed across the world
  • 334 shipments of humanitarian aid
  • 10 million treatments and hygiene items delivered
SDG 3: Good Health and Wellbeing
  • 3.8 Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.

SDG 1: No Poverty

Bring Hope actively works to ease the poverty of those we serve through all our projects. We approach this goal from a multifaceted plan of action that addresses the short and long-term needs of the communities we assist.

Moreover, thanks to our strong international partnerships, our regular donations of humanitarian and medical aid to refugee camps and poor communities make essential supplies accessible to those who are unable to source these products from elsewhere.

We aim to help break the poverty cycle, as well as provide essential services to find solutions that build resilient communities.

SDG 1: No Poverty
  • 1.1 By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day.
  • 1.2 By 2030, reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national definitions.
  • 1.A Ensure significant mobilisation of resources from a variety of sources, including through enhanced development cooperation, in order to provide adequate and predictable means for developing countries, in particular least developed countries, to implement programmes and policies to end poverty in all its dimensions.

SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

Bring Hope’s aid donations from partner organisations are often from stock surpluses— meaning that if not donated, these would become waste. Bring Hope, therefore, has the ability to divert tonnes of products from going to landfill or incineration and to redistribute them to people who ordinarily would not have access to them for economic or accessibility reasons.  

With a sustainable model that requires minimal cost and involvement from our partners, we believe that the companies we receive donations from are encouraged to commit more of their stock surpluses to donations, ensuring more loads of products redirected to those who benefit greatly from them, and away from landfill and potentially harmful environmental effects.

SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
  • 12.5 By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
  • 12.6 Encourage companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle.

SDG 17: Partnership for the Goals

Bring Hope’s organisational model is in many ways an embodiment of SDG17. Through our multi-stakeholder partnerships, we assemble a large network of collective expertise to be able to execute our life-changing work to the best of our ability and in the best interest of those we serve.

Our partnerships span continents and many business sectors, working in both the private and public business sphere.

We do not view other NGOs in regions we operate in as competition— rather partnership opportunities to mobilise resources and knowledge to best attend to the needs of those we serve. Our common goals unite us in our mission to bring hope to the most vulnerable through aid donations and programmes.

SDG 17: Partnership for the Goals
  • 17.16 Enhance the global partnership for sustainable development, complemented by multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilise and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the achievement of the sustainable development goals in all countries, in particular developing countries.
  • 17.17 Encourage and promote effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships.

SDG 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

Conflict and war are most often the reasons why the people we serve are forced to relocate from their homes or seek accommodation in temporary refugee camps. The safety and peace of these individuals and families are crucial to Bring Hope, and our mission to bring hope and restore dignity to all those we serve embodies our commitment to peace-building.

Bring Hope is also committed to transparency as an organisation, in not only our actions as an NGO but also our institutional processes such as application processes and staff diversity. Our annual reports detail how we make use of donations, the work we complete in each region we serve and our future vision.  

SDG 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
  • 16.1 Significantly reduce all forms of violence and related death rates everywhere.
  • 16.6 Develop effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels.

SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities

Our work to save lives and alleviate suffering globally by providing humanitarian and medical aid, as well as bringing hope to people experiencing displacement and poverty, is always carried out regardless of age, gender, religion, ethnicity or nationality.  

Based on a model of inclusion, Bring Hope’s efforts span multiple continents in aid and donations, proactively engaging with the groups we serve to ensure our aid is needed and appropriate.

As an organisation, our core values of empathy, tolerance, honesty and humility further reflect our dedication to SDG 10.

SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities
  • 10.2 By 2030, empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status.

SDG 4: Quality Education

Bring Hope recognises that for people in vulnerable situations—for example, those living in refugee camps or communities that have dealt with the destruction and violence of war— access to quality education can be challenging and may not be made a priority.

We envision a future in which living in a refugee camp or internally displaced community does not impact the ability for an individual to gain access to quality education.

Our programmes have been designed to increase employable skills of women in refugee camps and educate children in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to ensure they remain at the same level as their peers.

SDG 4: Quality Education
  • 4.1 By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and Goal-4 effective learning outcomes.
  • 4.4 By 2030, substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship.
  • 4.5 By 2030, eliminate gender disparities in education and ensure equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and children in vulnerable situations.

SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy

Many of the individuals and families we serve live in temporary accommodation in refugee camps, with little to no access to energy sources.

Bring Hope partners with WakaWaka to deliver solar charged portable lights to families who find themselves in situations where safe and affordable electricity is too difficult to reach.

Our vision is to bring a decentralised solution to those we serve, meaning they do not need to depend on potentially unreliable, inconsistent, or unsafe electricity sources and can be ensured light will be available when needed.  

SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
  • 7.1 By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services.
