"I always had a dream to become independent by doing some kind of skilled work. However, it was only after receiving an embroidery training that I became confident to start my own small business now. I don't ask for pocket money from my parents anymore," shares 17 year old Roshani from Rupandehi district. #sdg8

Hey heyy beautiful people! It's time for our daily session of #SDGs6pm.
#SDG8 aims to achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value by 2030.💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾
Not so fun fact: Data from 45 countries suggest that gender inequality in earnings is still pervasive: in 89% of these countries, the hourly wages of men are, on average, higher than those of women, with a median pay gap of 12.5%. 💔😡
We must work towards #EqualPay#Equality#SDGSs6pm#sdg2030

Hey hey Susty Family. It’s time for our #SDGs6pm dose! 💃🏾 Another target for #SDG8 is the Improvement of global resource efficiency in consumption and production and endeavour to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation.
PS: This target is supposed to be led by developed countries. But we haven’t exactly been seeing them doing a lot about this.🤷🏾♀️😶 #SDGs6pm
It’s a wrap for today guys, more #SDGs knowledge coming your way tomorrow.💚

Mumbai is the most populous city in India and is home to the corporate headquarters of numerous companies and multinational corporations.
Whether it is because of Bollywood or business, people with various interests come here, aspiring to get decent work and their dreams fulfilled.
Maybe that is why it is known as the City of Dreams.
🌏SDG 8 focuses on decent work and economic growth. Target 8.5 aims "by 2030, to achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value."

Great to see our growers in Uganda using the blockchain of @banquapp to record their financial transactions. Goal is for our growers to bring the ledger to banks as proof of a thriving business in order to access loans, crop insurance etc. 12 tons of barley already transacted through the platform! #dignitythroughidentity#banktheunbanked#sdg1#sdg8#sdg9#sdg11
How can tourism contribute to #SDG8? 📈
✔By providing jobs worldwide - already accounting for 1/10 jobs globally
✔By giving decent work opportunities to youth & women
✔By diversifying socio-economic impacts through tourism driven policy

I have come to discover over time in working with young adults that emphasis in our school statement is majorly in academic development... Very little attention is given to vocational and personal social development... That's why you see 1st class graduates not getting the job they desire, unable to handle a business, cant lead others... That's not good enough
Every step we take in school all leads to us living the kind of life that we dream of, and if we are not making steps to build and invest in that life from now, I wonder when will be convenient... Start now! Learn a life skill!! It begins with a step... Let the learning begin
Change Finance addresses #sdg8: Decent Work and Economic Growth by screening companies around slavery, child labor, discrimination, sex trafficking, and labor rights. It's time that everyone on the planet had access to safe and just work. #changefinance#nopoverty#sdgs

2019 Has begun. We are grateful to God how 2018 Ended.
40 Families got Christmas Presents with 15 Outstanding Women of the Makoko Dream Kingdom Royalty Academy School getting Sizeable Bags of Rice courtesy BREAK FORTH WOMEN INITIATIVE.
We are very very grateful for all that happened and for all who supported.
We are changing the narratives of Women in Makoko and hope to keep doing more.
To God be all the glory.

I read a scripture this morning: teach us to realize the brevity of life so that we can apply our hearts to wisdom. Another post I read talked about time being a constant, never changing, however what we do with our time matters because we grow older everyday and the time we have left keeps reducing as the clock continues to tick.
What goals have you made for the new year, what feat for you see yourself achieving, what steps do you envisage taking... Start now, with the fears, uncertainties, discouragements around, just do it anyway... You are not in competition with anyone neither do you have the same destination with anyone. You are you, start living your life because we all have our different timing... This year, we are committed to leaving a mark in the life of every one that comes across our path... If you have concerns, reach out to us... We impart a life!!! One at a time

From floods to extreme heat, 10 of the worst climate-linked disasters in 2018 caused at least $84.8 billion worth of damage, said a study released by the charity Christian Aid on Thursday.
The most expensive climate-linked weather events of 2018 were Hurricanes Florence and Michael, which caused at least $32 billion worth of damage as they slammed into the United States, the Caribbean and parts of central America, the report said.
Extreme weather driven by climate change hit every populated continent this year, the British relief organisation said, warning urgent action was needed to combat global warming. "The impacts of climate change are no longer subtle." states Michael Mann, professor, Atmospheric Science, Penn State University

From the Himalayas to the Low Tatras of Slovakia, where the ski resort of Jasna, already the largest in the country, has made a huge multi million euros investment in recent years to develop rapidly and attract new visitors.
Appealing hotels and apartment blocks seem to be popping up everywhere and modern chair lifts are now clearly up to the best standards. Judging from the car registrations in the parking lots, skiers are coming from far and wide, and I even spotted several Kazakh plates.
Jasna is currently the Little Resort that Could, but one cannot help but wonder how sustainable the model is and how much this fast development may affect the environment. Large swaths of forest appear to have been cleared recently and the building standards and architecture styles seem to vary enormously.
🌏Sustainable Development Goal 8 focuses on decent work and economic growth. Target 8.9 aims "by 2030, to devise and implement policies to promote sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products."
More to the West, in the Alps, the situation provides a point of reference. Fighting what they call the "greed of the developers", many believe that the Alps are over exploited and development needs to be halted. Governments and business tend to agree, with the building of new ski resorts banned in Switzerland and Germany, and Swiss banks reluctant to lend on ski development projects. In Austria, the Tyrol government also joined in, issuing a blanket ban on all new ski developments.

When Women Thrive All of Society Benefits!
This time last weekend we kicked off our Skinfood For Better Life Initiative targeted at providing Livelihood, Learning & Maternal Health Support to resource-poor and disadvantaged women and their families.
Here we have a group of widows who Omaness will be supporting with product grant and business training so they can startup their own Skinfood Merchant Business come Feb 2019.
Imagine the huge impact this business and the resulting income will make in the lives of these widows and their children!
Their story is one we are honored to be part of- You too can👇👇👇
Every time you buy Omaness you make it possible for us to make a little more profit so we can reach more women like these and further fund the growth of their skinfood business
