SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities, SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

What was once an informal network of helpers to people in need, many volunteers are now highly organized and play a fundamental role in humanitarian and development initiatives through organizations, clubs and groups that span the world. In recognition of the contributions they make, governments have taken steps to promote volunteer action by strengthening policies and institutions, and by increasing funding to support volunteer infrastructure.

Alors que tout a commencé par un réseau informel d’assistance aux populations dans le besoin, beaucoup de volontaires sont maintenant hautement organisés et jouent un rôle fondamental dans les initiatives humanitaires et de développement à travers les organisations, les clubs et les groups qui émergent dans le monde entier. En reconnaissance de leurs contributions, les gouvernements ont mis en place des actions pour promouvoir le volontariat en renforçant les politiques et les institutions et en augmentant le financement des structures de soutien aux volontaires.

SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities

Many people in rural communities in Nepal have been living in cramped conditions in temporary shelters for the last two years, so Preity decided to volunteer to help build earthquake resilient homes for earthquake victims.

Preity said, “After the devastating earthquakes hit Nepal in 2015, communities near the epicentre of the earthquake suffered a massive loss of lives, houses and livelihoods. Many people from the epicentre district of Gorkha needed support to start their life again, as they are not financially strong enough to build a new house for themselves.

SDG 3: Good health and well-being

De janvier 2014 à octobre 2017, plus de 230 000 familles irakiennes ont fui les zones de combat et les groupes armés, selon l'Organisation internationale pour les migrations (OIM). Ces familles sont confrontées à des hauts risques de protection liés à la fracture des structures communautaires, à la séparation des familles, la précarité des structures d'accueil et les pertes de revenus. Plus de 75% des familles vivent en dehors des camps, dans des logements et des établissements informels, où les enfants et les femmes sont particulièrement vulnérables.
