The starting point for a world without poverty and hunger, is the rural world. Around 45% of the global population live in the rural areas of developing countries, and most depend on their small family farms for their sustenance.
At SRKKF, we believe that investing in the rural population is a long-term solution to many problems the world faces today- like hunger, poverty, youth unemployment and forced migration.
Alignment with UN SDG goals
The overall work of SRKKF in the area of rural development addresses the following
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
- SDG 1: No Poverty
- SDG 2: Zero Hunger
- SDG 3: Good Health and Well Being
- SDG 5: Gender Equality
- SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
- SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
- SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities
