To address the global challenges we face, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. In 2021, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) opened their second call for SDG Good Practices to highlight examples of good practices, including those that could be replicated or scaled-up by others across the globe.
Perkins India’s Project Identification and Intervention (IDI) was among the submissions selected and recognized as a Good Practice.
Project IDI contributes to 8 of the 17 Goals, including:
SDG 3 (Good health and well-being):
Screening and referral leads to increased access to health services. Intervention services increase physical and cognitive abilities. Family support keeps children healthy/thriving.
SDG 4 (Quality Education):
Preparing children for school. School inclusion with support. Teachers receive training to provide quality education.
SDG 10 (Reduce inequalities):
Increase awareness of abilities of people with disabilities toward community inclusion.
SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals):
Health-Education partnerships toward better life outcomes for people with disabilities.
