The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of audacious, global goals that nonprofits, development organizations, and governments are working to reach by 2030. Can you believe that’s less than 10 years away?

Here at Water For People, we live and breathe SDG 6 – ensuring access to water and sanitation for all. At our Community Town Hall on August 27th, you can learn (and ask questions) about Water For People, SDG 6, and how our Everyone Forever model is the reason we believe we can achieve this ambitious goal.
