Research is a crucial component of any philanthropic endeavor. It is essential to carry out meticulous research using either qualitative or quantitative methods (or both, if needed) to assess the community's needs targeted for humanitarian intervention. At Developing Our World, we conduct thorough anthropological research on the communities we want to benefit, to identify their actual assets and needs.

Our contemporary world has become increasingly self-interested. To ease the chaos rife in the world, we must learn to inculcate Jesus's teachings in our life. Developing Our World aims to revive the useful lessons Jesus taught us by nurturing Spiritual care and life in our targeted communities.

The central theme of the UN's 17th SDG is forming global networks to promote its cherished objectives. With Covid-19, the world has realized that strong international cooperation is needed more than ever to recover from the pandemic and build back a better world. At Developing Our World, we aim to expand our network and build partnerships across countries to further our philanthropic efforts.

Strong institutions ensure the preservation of peace and justice in society. This is the main concern of SDG 16th. Developing Our World has carried out several projects to reinforce this goal.

Have you ever attended or participated in an Exploratory Trip? This is the opportunity for you. Developing Our World is organizing an exploratory trip to Guatemala in August, so its participants can explore, learn, taste, and enjoy the people and this beautiful country.  

Our survival as species depends on the very condition of our natural habitat—the land. The future of mankind on this planet is strongly associated with the survival of land ecosystems. Plants form the core of human life, and food needs accounting for 80% of the food consumed every day. With forests covering almost 31% of the global land area, they provide humankind with life essentials of timber and paper. The forest plays a crucial role in floodwater control, soil protection, climate regulation, and nutrient provision to plants while serving as the major food resource for a large fraction of animal species.

The oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth’s surface and represent 99% of the living space of the planet. These oceans play a vital role in life on Earth while consisting of the most diverse ecosystem. They add to global, regional and elemental cycling and help in the effective regulation of climate. The temperature, current, and composition and ecosystem support the global system, making Earth fit for human habitation. The effective utilization and thoughtful management of this resource are necessary for the survival of the whole of humanity. The changes in the marine ecosystem impact climatic change, as well.

Climate change refers to the developing changes in the world climate, including increasing temperature, intensifying precipitation, and disrupted wind patterns. The changing climate measures across the world could have consequential long-term impacts, including thinning sea ice, thawing of permafrost, development of heat waves, and drying up of water resources. The global climatic anomaly is associated with the increasing weather-related catastrophes such as storms, floods, wildfires, and hurricanes.

We haven’t taken enough measures for efficient and effective utilization of natural resources provided by our planet. The resources are in abundance but require efficient consumption and production planning for sustainability and development. Global economic growth and development depend on these natural resources and the environment. In order to strengthen the economic sector, we need improved utilization methods that are not destructive for the planet and economy.

More than half of the world’s population lives in the city and urban areas. The disproportionate peopling leads to exacerbation of issues of urban areas. The rapid increase in global population and migration rate towards urban areas has led to a boom in megacities development. With such rapid development and expansion of cities, the slums have become the highlight of urban areas.

The world’s wealth is not well-regulated and is held by a few privileged people. The improper distribution of global wealth and finances often leads to financial and social inequality. The country with expanded wealth and the financial disparity is vulnerable to intense poverty and social discrimination. The extensive financial crisis among the people of a nation often feeds the discrimination on the basis of religious beliefs, genders, cast, color, and economic status.

Considered one of the poorest economies and socially deprived regions, Guatemala lacks holistic community development. The country faces challenges on a social, economic, and community basis. The majority of the population is underprivileged with restricted reach and availability of basic life necessities. On the other hand, the rapid spread of endemic has worsened the situation leading to increased social and economic problems. In addition to that, the prevalent poverty has given rise to community-related issues as well. The uncatered increase in the spread of the virus has put a stop to mission trips and sharing of the message of the gospel. 

The growth of industry, infrastructure, and innovation is at the center of economic development at any level. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to expand in these areas to counter its impact. It is one reason why Developing Our World makes several efforts to support the SDG Goal 9.

Decent work and opportunities for economic growth are necessary for improving the living standards of people. This is the focus area of the 8th SDG Goal. Developing Our World is involved in several activities to support this goal.

The 7th SDG goal is "Affordable and Clean Energy." It is focused on improving access to better energy, particularly for those who are deprived. Developing Our World is carrying out certain activities to support this goal.
