SDG11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

“The rapid growth of cities -as a result of rising populations and increasing migration, has led to a boom in mega cities, especially in the developing world, and slums are becoming a more significant feature of urban life. Making cities sustainable means creating career and business opportunities, safe and affordable housing, and building resilient societies and economies. It involves investment in public transport, creating green public spaces, and improving urban planning and management in participatory and inclusive ways.” UNITED NATIONS

Women share childcare within the settlements to enable them to work. We want to provide a brighter, better- equipped and more stimulating environment for children and carers.

We want to enhance the voice and visibility of people living in the informal settlements so they can tell their own stories and raise funds for their campaigns.
