Impact Report: how we meet the UN's Sustainable Development Goals through Humanitarian Architecture
Good buildings and infrastructure are essential for accessing human rights and meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). You can’t eliminate leprosy without health clinics, or provide universal education without building schools and training centres. Through the creation of buildings that deliver essential services and support we place human rights at the centre of our work. Whilst Article 25’s work addresses most of the seventeen UN SDGs, three are of particular relevance as they align so closely to the three cornerstones of our work, namely: Healthcare, Education and Disaster Risk Reduction.
As active signatories of the UN's Global Compact - a voluntary initiative based on CEO commitments to implement universal sustainability principles and take steps to support the UN's goals - we are driven by our vision for a world where access to education, healthcare and a safe homes exist wherever you live in the world. It should not matter whether you live in a country that is prone to natural disasters, or that is recovering from civil unrest and conflict, or indeed whether your community is facing some of the most deep-seated poverty challenges of modern times. Everyone should have access to essential healthcare, to safe places to learn and play, and a thriving home life with adequate shelter.
Our Impact report summarises our latest efforts to achieve the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, supporting these communities as an active agent for change.
We would like to thank all of Article 25’s supporters for their continued funding dedication to our common cause, and to our volunteers and staff who work tirelessly in achieving our mission.
