VSA’s Commitment to the Global Community

At VSA we understand the difference that can be made to humanity if we all worked together for a fairer and more inclusive society. That is why we take our responsibility as a global citizen seriously, and we are fully committed to changing peoples’ lives for the better.

The United Nations has a set of 17 sustainable development goals that it is aiming to achieve which will transform the world we live in for generations to come. We believe that the work that we do aligns with a small subset of goals (SDG 1, 3, 4 & 15) which has a strong connection to the work that we deliver and the lives that we change. We believe that the work that we do across our organisation supports the global community by helping to transform peoples’ lives across the following sustainable development goals.
