What are the 'Sustainable Development Goals'?

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of goals agreed by United Nations member states with the aim of ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all by 2030. Each goal has specific targets to reach by 2030. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and the public.

Just a Drop's clean safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects directly contribute to SDG 6:

Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

Since 1998, Just a Drop has brought safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects to over 1.5 million people in 32 countries across the world.

We work at a grassroots level with communities to identify the best water and sanitation solutions for their needs, such as rainwater harvesting systems, sand dams or drilled wells. All of our projects are community owned and led, and are monitored for years after completion. Find out more about our solutions or learn about our approach, based on the values of community, sustainability, quality and impact.
