Sustainable development goals are 17 global objectives that aim to alleviate poverty and ensure people live in a peaceful and prosperous environment. These goals are combined and represent three crucial areas of development; economic, environmental and social.

Ending poverty and its form everywhere
This SDG aims to eradicate abject poverty all over the world and comprises of people living below 1 dollar every day. It targets to ensure all men and women especially the poor and vulnerable have access to essential services, finances, technology, ownership and control of land by 2030. This goal also protects people living with disabilities as UN research has proven that there is a bidirectional connection between poverty and disability. Disability leads to poverty as it prevents these affected people from engaging in economic activities that will make them sustain and improve their living standards.
To meet these goals, Governments world-over are not only spending money, but also coming up with policies that support NGOs that want to help with the achievement of the SDG. These NGOs will among other things, generate funds to tackle projects aimed at achieving the goals.
