In 2019, the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) held an SDG forum for 3 days from March 20th to March 22nd. Our executive lead at The Sapphires Development Initiative, Mr Binuyo Olutomiwa, participated as a consul in the gender equality committee. He demonstrated and spoke extensively on the parental break and other market amends in Rwanda.

The forum deliberated upon the core issues and hurdles of our time, acknowledged by the United Nations (UN) in the year 2015 – the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Forum ambassadors in every committee represented the positions of the UN partner countries, global institutions, and districts on the committee’s plan. The outcome of the forum was a business scheme aimed at providing solutions to specific problems within the scope of the SDGs’ receptacle.

The market reforms are aimed at skyrocketing the welfare standard of each present country thereby developing economic performance, decreasing inequalities, eradicating poverty, and preserving the environment.

However, some hindrances pose many problems to the actualization of the sustainable development goals which can only be elevated if the governance crucial to their execution is addressed and set right. To SDGs, governance is the coming together of the government, business, civil society, researchers, and NGOs to achieve a common goal. Unless we see governance in the light of SDGs, the objectives will only remain a dream.

Three outstanding governance challenges everywhere are a poor safeguard in the international financial system, coups against appointed national governments, and the battle to take global action to control greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. These issues and more were resolved and a business scheme was put in place to solve these challenges.

Having our core values at The Sapphires Development Initiative (TSDI) being harmonized with at least three of the UN SDGs (quality education, good health, gender equality), the outcome of this conference is important to us. Hence, we identify with the governance that is set to achieving a common goal as we double our efforts in grooming great leaders, creating a fundamental evolution, and promoting humanity among our other visions.
