MILLENIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The team at WRJBH has joined the effort to achieve the 8 MDGs set out by the United Nations. Specific loan products for women and youth ensure that they are empowered to achieve their goals of home and land ownership. Other loans are available for education fees and business expansion to assist members in combating poverty. WRJBH projects have directly helped with the success of Target 7.D as many of the organization's members from informal settlements have been able to improve their homes or businesses, or even move into their own homes outside the slums
