Ann Foundation at the Forefront of SDGs: Leaving No One Behind is the Core of Our Mission

In 2015, the world’s governments adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal Agenda that commits all relevant actors to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

At Ann Foundation, we believe that the goal of Quality Education is one of the cornerstones of achieving SDG’s 2030 Agenda. Our vision asserts that education creates independence that inspires confidence which brings peace and sustainable development.

Just recently, the United Nations and Member States across the globe, private actors and non-governmental organizations, among others, have undertaken the second review of the SDG implementation under the theme, “eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world.”

Despite some positive successes and good practices in providing education for all across the globe, the results from a review in 2017, in fact, are not as inspiring as we could wish for. The lack of acceptance and adherence on the part of many political leaders about the SDGs demonstrates this really clearly. It makes it extremely hard to gain political support and resources to end poverty, protect the environment, and ensure peace and prosperity when there is no consensus about the common problems, the causes and the solutions.

In this context, the most affected are children who remain uneducated and, therefore, miss their chance for better futures.

Education is particularly important for kids who are in orphanages, or in poorly funded schools and vocational institutes across the developing world. Based on our own experience, we can affirm that it is very hard to provide quality education to these kids due to the unavailability of sufficient support.

We have seen the impact of poor education or the lack thereof. Our projects, including our work with the orphans at the Voice Trust and the Khadijatul Kubra Girls Mission Project, have demonstrated how access to technologies can simply change the lives of children and provide them with the opportunity to craft a better future for themselves.

First and foremost, the value of education is much bigger than it sounds. Our projects do not simply provide children across the developing world with an opportunity to learn more and be a better in knowing mathematics and art and not simply ensure that more girls and boys have access to quality development and education (SDG 4), we contribute to raising their self-confidence to succeed in life, without which the main promise of the 2030 Agenda, to ensure that all human beings can fulfill their potential in dignity and equality, remains illusory.

And we need your support in continuing our work.

You can do so by:

  1. sharing information about our work and share our good practices world-wide;
  2. volunteering with us to make our projects stronger;
  3. providing financial support to ensure that our mission and vision will continue to contribute to the 2030 Agenda.

Making The Difference

Education enables everyone to grow both socially and economically by developing the common culture and values in the society.

 “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

                                                                                                                            -Nelson Mandela

We the fortunate ones have a duty to educate and empower the less privileged and make a noticeable change to create a more happy, safe and tolerant world. No matter how small the action, we all have the ability to make a difference in the life of someone less fortunate, to change the world for the better. Ann Foundation tirelessly is working to bring education to every marginalized child in the world as we strongly believe in the empowerment that it brings.  Through the hard work of volunteers and thanks to generous donors we are making a real difference in today’s world, a child at a time.

This hard work is though never enough as there are millions of children around the world that are left without education, depriving them from a chance of a better future….

Let’s give them the opportunities they deserve. Let’s give them the hope. Let’s make that difference every day.

Mahima’s story: Volunteering with Ann Foundation

Ann Foundation is fortunate enough to work with a global family of inspiring and talented volunteers.

This is Mahima’s story:

I started working with Ann Foundation in 2012. Teaching disadvantaged students is a most rewarding form of volunteering. These students come from resource poor backgrounds. Ann Foundation gives them necessary tools and provides the kind of assistance unavailable to them in their home country. Being able to take these classes for free, and to connect with people who could help them with their career goals is very motivating for these students unlike privileged students in the U.S. they never skip a class.READ MORE
