Accelerating sustainable solutions
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all; the 17 Global Goals and 169 targets stimulate action in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet.
All Hands and Hearts’ mission and expertise in providing effective disaster relief to vulnerable communities align us with several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through our unique volunteer model, we accelerate progress toward SDGs 4 (Quality Education), 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation) and 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities).
Join us, during this Decade of Action, to build a better future for all.
“We could not be more pleased with All Hands and Hearts and what they are doing to build high quality, permanent classrooms using best practices in earthquake resistant design.”
Our Focus Areas
SDG 4 Quality Education
Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning for all
Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to creating sustainable development. In addition to improving the quality of life, access to inclusive education helps equip people with the tools required to develop innovative solutions to the world’s greatest problems. Improving access to quality education in a post-disaster context is a focus of ours and we have a proven track record of impact across the world. Specifically, we help to build educational facilities and minimize the disruption of disaster events on education within vulnerable communities.
SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation
Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
Millions of people around the world lack access to clean water and adequate sanitation and hygiene facilities. This issue is compounded by disasters which may damage existing infrastructure. On our international relief programs, a strategic focus is to implement Renewal Projects which includes Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH).
SDG 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Our long-term commitment to disaster-affected areas enables us to work alongside communities to implement a more sustainable solution together. We support the building of inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable human settlement, to help communities recover faster and mitigate the risks of future disasters.
