Since 1966 The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been working within countries of need, so that they can individually become sustainable and the livings of those populating these countries are improved. Today the UNDP is aiding 177 countries and territories providing understandings to help lives and develop resilient nations.
An intention that the UNDP share, are the ‘Millennium Development Goals’ which achieved by 2015 would see:
- An eradication of extreme poverty and hunger
- Achievement of universal primary education
- Promotion of gender equality
- Deduction of infant mortality
- Improvement of maternal health
- Combating HIV/Aids, Malaria and other diseases
- Assurance of environmental sustainability
- Development of global partnerships for development.
The UNDP teaches these countries how to use aid effectively so they can become sustainable. The UNDP has many ongoing projects, in countries like Gaza, South Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Zambia, Indonesia, Haiti and Mali. A large proportion of these projects are focused on health especially relating to HIV/ Aids where their goal is to fight it globally, give aid quicker and strengthen hospitals. Other projects are based within the police force, fighting poverty, aiding refugees, improving transport and working with Law and Order to help prevent corruption.
This is a mission that is also shared with Worldcoo with the fundamental end goals of helping people’s lives, through educating about diseases, health, gender equality and basic human rights.
Like the UNDP, Worldcoo has been investing time into many projects like Agronomic Engineering in Diffa, Niger, where they aim to build a fence around the crop area to protect from animals during the harvest, which will be a benefit to many who are malnourished. Other projects are based in Vietnam, Senegal, Gambia and Nicaragua where there is an intention to improve sanitary conditions, aiding territories to become economically advanced and educational developments within schools.
The UNDP and other like-minded charities have a considerable task ahead of them to achieve the ‘Millennium Development Goals’, however seeing the achievements of the UNDP over the last 47 years the following two years are sure to be extremely productive.
