GSP - helping the world meet the Sustainable Development Goals
Dear

We are doing our bit in a small area of Africa to achieve nine Sustainable Development Goals:
Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms, everywhere - we are helping with this is our little corner of Kenya
Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture - our school sustainable food programs help the children in our schools
Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well being for all - our water, toilets, hand washing and health education programs have a proven track record at keeping students healthier
Goal 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education - our schools are achieving great things not only academically but also in the positive learning environments they create for students
Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls - our Young Women's Program is building the confidence and life skills of the young women involved
Goal 6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all - through our Well Being Officer program we ensure clean water, sanitary toilets and washrooms in our schools
Goal 7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all - working on this one!
Goal 8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all - 2018 heralded our first graduate start full time employment
Goal 9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation - 2018 saw our first school completely transformed from mud and stick classes to a modern school with permanent brick classrooms, school infrastructure and positive learning spaces
