The Futuresense foundation overview of goal 5.

  • Goal 5, Gender Equality

At the FutureSense Foundation we recognize that,

Women are not only the hardest hit by this pandemic, they are also the backbone of recovery in communities. Putting women and girls at the centre of economies will fundamentally drive better and more sustainable development outcomes for all, support a more rapid recovery, and place the world back on a footing to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.” (United Nations).

In all aspects of our programs, we work to promote girls and women and ensure our teams and volunteers are positive role models for girls and women in the community. The majority of our leaders and volunteers at the Foundation are female. These individuals are consistently working with other female community partners and members to assist in promoting them through education, health promotion, social enterprise and authentic relationships.
