Have you heard about the Sustainable Development Goals? These are goals that governments need to try and reach by 2030 with a view to ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all. Each goal has its own specific targets that need to be achieved by the aforementioned deadline.

 

Goal number 2 is “Zero Hunger”. Through this goal, the countries concerned seek to “[e]nd hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture” (source: UN.org). It is easy to understand why hunger ranks so high among the United Nations’ priorities for sustainable development. Indeed, the UN and Generation Nutrition respectively report that “[p]oor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year” and that “Good nutrition could save 52 million children from life-threatening malnutrition. Every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world, a child dies of acute malnutrition.”.

 

One of this specific goal’s target, according to the UN, is to “increase investment, including through enhanced international cooperation, in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technology development and plant and livestock gene banks in order to enhance agricultural productive capacity in developing countries, in particular least developed countries.”

 

LSL World Initiative specializes in innovative financing. We provide solutions to support governments in implementing their own funding mechanisms to achieve economic self-sufficiency and spur sustainable development. At the helm of LSL World Initiative is Laurent Salvador Lamothe, a visionary leader driven by a deep sense of global social responsibility. During his tenure as Prime Minister, Mr. Lamothe fostered a surge in direct foreign investment, tackled corruption, improved security and stability by expanding the police force by 30 percent, and implemented social programs which, according to an estimation by the World Bank, raised 2 million Haitians out of extreme poverty. Furthermore, he was able to rebuild 1.4 million of the 1.5 million homes that were destroyed by the earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010.

  

In the context of a free education program that Mr. Lamothe spearheaded, a $1.50 surcharge was collected from wire transfers, thus generating $1 million in funding for education each month. Elementary school attendance rose from 55 to 90 percent as a result, transforming the lives of 1.4 million children. Mr. Lamothe is now replicating this successful model on a global scale with his new company, LSL World Initiative.

 

Our own goal, at LSLWI, is to help governments achieve theirs.

Have you heard about the Sustainable Development Goals? These are goals that governments need to try and reach by 2030 with a view to ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all. Each goal has its own specific targets that need to be achieved by the aforementioned deadline.

 

Goal number 2 is “Zero Hunger”. Through this goal, the countries concerned seek to “[e]nd hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture” (source: UN.org). It is easy to understand why hunger ranks so high among the United Nations’ priorities for sustainable development. Indeed, the UN and Generation Nutrition respectively report that “[p]oor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year” and that “Good nutrition could save 52 million children from life-threatening malnutrition. Every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world, a child dies of acute malnutrition.”.

 

One of this specific goal’s target, according to the UN, is to “increase investment, including through enhanced international cooperation, in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technology development and plant and livestock gene banks in order to enhance agricultural productive capacity in developing countries, in particular least developed countries.”

 

LSL World Initiative specializes in innovative financing. We provide solutions to support governments in implementing their own funding mechanisms to achieve economic self-sufficiency and spur sustainable development. At the helm of LSL World Initiative is Laurent Salvador Lamothe, a visionary leader driven by a deep sense of global social responsibility. During his tenure as Prime Minister, Mr. Lamothe fostered a surge in direct foreign investment, tackled corruption, improved security and stability by expanding the police force by 30 percent, and implemented social programs which, according to an estimation by the World Bank, raised 2 million Haitians out of extreme poverty. Furthermore, he was able to rebuild 1.4 million of the 1.5 million homes that were destroyed by the earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010.

  

In the context of a free education program that Mr. Lamothe spearheaded, a $1.50 surcharge was collected from wire transfers, thus generating $1 million in funding for education each month. Elementary school attendance rose from 55 to 90 percent as a result, transforming the lives of 1.4 million children. Mr. Lamothe is now replicating this successful model on a global scale with his new company, LSL World Initiative.

 

Our own goal, at LSLWI, is to help governments achieve theirs.
