These programs are in line with our vision and mission to raise public awareness and civic participation in promoting the goals of the UN, as well as identifying and supporting local NGOs that work within the confines of SDGs. In line with the need for more youth participation in achieving the SDGs, UNA Indonesia particularly focuses on youth-led organizations. However, NGOs working toward the SDGs that are outside the age group can also benefit from our programs.
