Tomorrow Within Reach: Leveraging the SDGs to Transform Today

Released in September 2023, ‘Tomorrow Within Reach: Leveraging the SDGs to Transform Today’ is Malaika’s impact report outlining our contributions to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the DRC. 

The 17 SDGs were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Through Malaika’s SDG localization model, we’re directly impacting a total of six SDGs, creating pathways that go beyond girls’ education and reach the entire community in which we’re operating. 

Our first impact pillar – Education – directly addresses SDG 4: Quality Education and fulfills our core mission to provide girls with a free, quality education. Our second impact pillar – Opportunity – focuses on SDG 5: Gender Equality and SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. Our third impact pillar – Dignity – activates progress towards SDG 2: Zero Hunger, SDG 3: Good Health and Wellbeing, and SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation. 

Read the report below to find out exactly how we’re doing this and for our key takeaways and learnings for donors, implementers, and public figures. You can also download it here.
