Sustainable development in any area we work in will be followed vigorously via local organisations working with the local authorities. To begin with, sustainability and human rights are inseparable. For human rights to be present there needs to be access to basic needs such as clean water, sanitation, adequate shelter, energy, health care, food security and the protection of biodiversity. Besides, no society can function without the important and crucial role women take up, therefore women’s empowerment, emancipation and gender equality must be integrated into the set-up of society.
We believe in the importance of building human solidarity in a time of great distress and mass migration, with the death toll rising daily, and this is why we urge the promotion of dialogue and cooperation first and foremost among the world leaders and as well as all peoples, irrespective of race, religion, language, or tradition.
At Re-Build, we believe that it is not sufficient enough to achieve human sustainability, but socio-political, sustainability, economic sustainability, and of course environmental sustainability. We love the Earth and want to protect it in every way we can by minimising the damage we do to it. It is of paramount importance that all of our work overseas adopts the Sustainability ethos. Our work will be carried out by utilising all the natural resources in the villages, towns, and cities we work in to limit our carbon footprint. Although there are challenges to up- keeping the sustainability features in assisting communities where the trauma of their experiences have consumed their lives, we say ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way’, and therefore will make use of all professional guidance in our projects to create sustainable methods of work and construction. Throughout our work, in the communities we work with we will inform and educate those members of the community who are not as informed as others on how important it is for us to meet their needs by implementing environmental sustainability, socio-political sustainability, and economic sustainability now, so as not to compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
