SDG Action Team

Empowering Lives. Creating Change.​

Empowering lives. Creating change. To relieve the suffering of the most vulnerable in society through humanitarian assistance and education, empowering individuals and communities to become self-sustainable.

The SDG Action Team is officially an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC), advocating for the Sustainable Development Goals, while outreaching Tzu Chi’s projects that target them.

Tzu Chi Foundation actively works within the international community to promote grassroots empowerment, developing a more sustainable community after being impacted by disasters. With the standard humanitarian guidelines to provide food security and nutrition, WASH education & capacity, Shelter, Settlement, and Non-Food Items, and Health Action, Tzu Chi aligns itself with the Sustainable Development Goals to create a world in which the vulnerable becomes empowered and finds the strength to help others in need, forming a cycle of compassion and gratitude.
