The Global Week to Act for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or #Act4SDGs week kicked off this month from 20th- 30th September 2019 where we here at UNA marked it in Dodoma. Sustainable Development Goals as promised by all nations in 2015 were to be achieved by 2030 aim at creating a future of peace and prosperity on a thriving planet. We here at UNA continue to do our best ensure that we spread awareness on the SDGs and encourage active participation on a community level.

The Global Week to Act for SDGs is an annual call to action for individuals and organizations across the world to accelerate action for the Sustainable Development Goals.
