SDG #1: No Poverty
1.3 Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable
In Light Their Rights, we ensure that homeless are well protected with adequate necessities for living.
1.4 By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance
Our members pay regular visits to the homeless and give them access to basic daily needs.
SDG #4: Quality Education
4.4 By 2030, substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship
Just like our debate classes or history workshop, Light Their Rights provide numerous opportunities for underprivileged children to develop their skills and interests.
4.6 By 2030, ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults, both men and women, achieve literacy and numeracy
Through public speaking contests and debate workshops, we wish to improve the communication skills of children and help them achieve a certain level of literacy.
4.7 By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development
By introducing them to different social issues through debate and public speaking, we make sure that underprivileged children have adequate knowledge about what's happening in the world.
SDG #11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
11.1 By 2030, ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgrade slums
Our homeless branch is working hard to provide a more comfortable life for the homeless.
11.2 By 2030, significantly reduce the number of deaths and the number of people affected and substantially decrease the direct economic losses relative to global gross domestic product caused by disasters, including water-related disasters, with a focus on protecting the poor and people in vulnerable situations
In hard situations, such as Covid-19, our homeless branch supports the homeless fully by donating needed necessities. We conduct interviews beforehand to find out what exactly they need.
SDG #17: Partnership for the Goals
17.16 Enhance the global partnership for sustainable development, complemented by multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the achievement of the sustainable development goals in all countries, in particular developing countries
Light Their Rights emphasizes on global partnership, our partners and collaborators come from different countries, like Global Millennial Group and Youth World.
17.17 Encourage and promote effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships Data, monitoring and accountability
From student-led organisations to registered NGOs, we're keen to partner with different initiatives and join hands to make a change.
