Goal 10 – Reduced Inequalities

REDUCE INEQUALITY WITHIN AND
AMONG COUNTRIES

Too much of the world’s wealth is held by a very small group of people. This often leads to financial and social discrimination. In order for nations to flourish, equality and prosperity must be available to everyone – regardless of gender, race, religious beliefs or economic status. When every individual is self sufficient, the entire world prospers.
