The Sustainable Development Goals

Women in some of the world’s poorest areas are given the opportunity to create their own workplace and earn an income. The business sector is doing their best to contribute to this end. In 2018 over 5,4 million kroner came from companies in Rogaland.

The global challenges we are facing are tremendous, and the hardest hit by poverty are women and children. A contribution from your company can make a big impact.
-The UNs Sustainable Development Goal number one is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. That means economic growth must be distributed equally amongst country and population. It means creating sustainable jobs and giving equal opportunity to everyone. Gender equality is not only a goal in itself, but also contributes towards fighting poverty, says Jorunn Braathen Eia, head of the fundraising campaign in Rogaland.
