What are the Global Goals?
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals with the power to create a better world by 2030.
By ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change the 17 Global Goals guide governments, businesses and each of us to work together to build a better future for all.

Our aim is to support our global community towards a better future, through supporting projects close to home and across the world.

Support Musical Education for Primary School Children
State schools in England alone have seen a 21% decrease in music provision over the last ﬁve years. One in ﬁve primary school teachers report there is no regular music lesson for their class and only 12% of schools in deprived areas have an orchestra. Music and music making has a huge impact on the development of a child but very often the resources are simply not available. Music For All provides musical instruments for primary school children, stimulating an enjoyment of music making, improving concentration and building conﬁdence.
Provide Safe Drinking Water to Families
Access to safe drinking water is the foundation for the issues of health, education, food, and livelihood. This water is provided via the means of a Bio-Sand Water Filter that lasts up to two decades or more and is able to provide for an entire family. A Bio-Sand Filter (BSF) is a point-of-use water treatment system adapted from traditional slow sand ﬁlters. Cambodia has over 9,000,000 cases of diarrhoeal disease, costing the nation $448 million a year. One of the easiest ways to combat poverty and disease is to provide access to clean water sources.
