who we are
“Pay Kindness Forward is a community set up by like-minded people with the intention to better the world with a BIG impact through one person’s SMALL act of kindness”
The formation of Pay Kindness Forward organization is inspired by an American drama film in 2000 directed by “Mimi Leder” known as “Pay It Forward”.
Pay It Forward is about the story of a social studies teacher who gives an assignment to his junior high school class to think of an idea to change the world for the better, then put it into action.
When one young student created a plan “paying forward” favors, he not only affects the life of his struggling single mother, but he sets in motion an unprecedented wave of human kindness, which unbeknown to him has blossomed into a profound phenomenon.
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030. #envision2030

GOAL 17 IS OUR MAIN FOCUS
In Pay Kindness Forward, we are focusing on Goal 17 of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
There is an African proverb that blend into our hearts and that is –
“If you want to fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
We are connecting with like-minded people, not just in Singapore, but reaching out to Asia Pacific and around the globe to work come together as one united team.
We must come together and work hand in hand leveraging each other’s skills, talents, resources and knowledge to solve world’s biggest issues that we are currently facing right now.
We need everyone in a platform that we are building to come up with better solutions to eradicate world’s problems by 2030. Everyone including the Government, civil society, social clubs, religious ministries, scientists, innovators, thinkers, doers, academies, local institutes and most importantly YOU!
We are all in this together. The Agenda, with its 17 goals is universal and calls for action by all countries, both developed countries and developing countries, to ensure no one is left behind.

How to achieve SDG goal 17?
In order to achiever SDG Goal no. 17 optimally, we need to understand why The United Nations created this goal in the first place.
Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
The UN explains:
A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. These inclusive partnerships built upon principles and values, a shared vision, and shared goals that place people and the planet at the centre, are needed at the global, regional, national and local level.
The UN has defined 19 Targets and 25 Indicators for SDG 17. Targets specify the goals and Indicators represent the metrics by which the world aims to track whether these Targets are achieved. Below we quote the original text of all Targets and show the data on the agreed Indicators.
