The library project and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. The Sustainable Development Goals aim to create a sustainable planet for both developed and developing countries. The goal is to achieve a fair and viable, sustainable planet Earth for everyone. SDGs are part of the Global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Every sustainability dimension – economic, social, and environmental – is taken into consideration in the implementation of SDGs.

The library project has a significant effect on the implementation of SDGs. Firstly, the library project supports quality education in the village of Nyakrom. Better learning facilities, books, and knowledge contribute to the goal of quality education. The free access to information supports poverty reduction through education and skill development.

Education and access to information have also been proven to reduce, for example, inequality between the sexes. Libraries contribute to literacy, which is also the foundation for reducing inequalities. The implementation of the library project would therefore have a great impact on equality in the region, and it would also enable children to reach their full potential.

The library project therefore has far-reaching possibilities. The implementation of the SDGs provides sustainable growth and development in the area. Reduced inequality is another significant aspect, along with quality education. Establishing library also has an impact on poverty, with the potential to, for example, provide employment opportunities. All of these significant changes could become a part of Nyakrom village’s future if the library project is realised.

Sustainable Development Goals concern everyone, and their implementation constitutes a global agenda. Everyone’s contribution is required to ensure equal living conditions for all in the future. Taking part in the library project will concurrently promote sustainable development. Your valuable contribution is essential; please join us in assisting with the implementation of this significant project for the village.
