Eradicating poverty is not charity, it’s an act of justice and the key to unlocking enormous human potential. Poverty still persists in every country and affects nearly half of the world’s population, with nearly a twelfth in extreme poverty. Together, we can feed the hungry, wipe out disease and give everyone in the world a chance to prosper and live a productive and rich life.


THINGS TO DO

  • Lend your voice to the fight against extreme poverty, find a Poverty charity you want to support and donate your time or money. 
  • Donate what you don’t use. Local charities will give your gently used clothes, books and furniture a new life.
  • Support campaigns collecting items for victims of emergencies. Donate blankets, food supplies, etc. to support those in need.
  • Stay informed. Follow your local news and stay in touch with the Global Goals online or on social media at @TheGlobalGoals.

Hunger is the leading cause of death worldwide. Our planet has provided us with tremendous resources, but unequal access and inefficient handling leaves millions of people malnourished. If we promote sustainable agriculture with modern technologies and fair distribution systems, we can sustain the whole world’s population and make sure that nobody will ever suffer from hunger again.


THINGS TO DO

  • Find a Hunger charity you want to support. Any donation, big or small, can make a difference!
  • Buy local and in-season food. Try to grow some of your own food.
  • Don’t waste food. Freeze fresh produce and leftovers if you don’t have the chance to eat them before they go bad.
  • Buy 'funny fruit' – many fruits and vegetables are thrown out because their size, shape, or color are not “right”. Buying these perfectly good funny fruit utilizes food that might otherwise go to waste.
  • Consume less meat and become vegetarian for one day a week. The meat production industry has a huge impact on the environment.
  • Take action with the World’s Largest Lesson on Goal 2.

Education liberates the intellect, unlocks the imagination and is a major factor in self-respect. It brings prosperity and opens a world of opportunities, enabling all of us to contribute to a progressive, healthy society. Learning benefits every human being and should be available to all.


THINGS TO DO

Gender bias undermines our social fabric and devalues all of us. It is not just a human rights issue; it is a tremendous waste of the world’s human potential. By denying women equal rights and equal pay, we deny half the population a chance to live life at its fullest. Political, economic and social equality for women will benefit everyone. Together we can eradicate prejudice and work for equal rights and respect for all.


THINGS TO DO

  • Pay inequality persists everywhere.: women earn 10% to 30% less than men for the same work. Voice your support for equal pay for equal work.
  • Be aware of gender stereotypes. Recognize them, avoid them and educate others about them.
  • Stand up against harassment. Whenever you see or become aware of harassment, whether in the workplace, streets, home or the online space, raise your voice against it.
  • Find female mentors/leaders. Ensure that some of your role models or mentors are women. There’s a lot you can learn from women in positions of authority.
  • Share the workload at home. Sharing domestic responsibilities ensures the work burden doesn’t fall only on one person and instills the value of gender equality and essential life skills in children.
  • Give your time or money to an Equality charity. Any donation, big or small, can make a difference!
  • Stay informed. Follow your local news and stay in touch with the Global Goals online or on social media at @TheGlobalGoals.

One in three people live without adequate sanitation, which causes unnecessary disease and death. Although huge strides have been made in providing access to clean drinking water, lack of sanitation is undermining these advances. If we provide affordable equipment and education in hygiene practices, we can stop this unnecessary suffering and loss of life.


THINGS TO DO

  • Give your time or money to a Water or Sanitation charity you want to support. 
  • Run a campaign on hygiene. Raise awareness in your community through social media, school/university campaign or even go door to door in your neighborhood.
  • Don’t overuse water. Take showers not baths: tubs take gallons more water than a 5-10 minute shower. Consider getting a water meter to be aware of your water usage.
  • Organize a clean up project for rivers and oceans. Engage your whole community to clean up a local river, lake or seashore.
  • Stay informed. Follow your local news and stay in touch with the Global Goals online or on social media at @TheGlobalGoals.
