The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Imagine a world where there is no poverty and inequality, and everyone has access to the basic facilities of life. To create a better world for ‘people and planet’ by 2030, the United Nations set the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Delft Imaging Systems is a social enterprise and aims to promote these SDGs with our activities/projects. Currently, Delft focuses on 2 goals:
Goal 3: Good health and well-being
With our medical innovations, we aim to provide access to innovative healthcare for everyone worldwide.
Goal 7: Renewable Energy
Our solar panels provide electrical energy for our OneStopTB container clinics, ensuring sustainable and clean energy in even the remotest areas.
The Delft Foundation
Goal 17 of the SDGs is focused on ‘Partnership for the goals’. This goal aims to implement global partnerships for sustainable development. This is why we set up the Delft Foundation: to partner with and support others that promote the SDGs we believe in.
The activities of the foundation will focus around two main goals: to enable access and increase the quality of education (Goal 4) and improve the position of women (Goal 5).
The Delft Foundation aims to not just donate money, but really empower organizations and leverage their efforts.
In 2018, Delft supported the Joseph N. Boakai foundation with a donation. This foundation focuses on Education & Youth and Gender Development in Liberia. Their vision is to drive transformative social change by providing needed assistance and service to improve the lives of the people of Liberia, especially in the rural areas.
