Still, nearly half of the world’s population lives in poverty, and lack of food and clean water is killing thousands every single day of the year. Together, we can feed the hungry, wipe out disease and give everyone in the world a chance to prosper and live a productive and rich life.”

As the UN emphasizes, “Education liberates the intellectand is fundamental for self-respect.” It opens doors of opportunity and advancement for people, allowing them to contribute to society. By foremost being a learning social enterprise, ShopByLocals addresses this need because we seek to make quality learning available for all.

“Education liberates the intellect, unlocks the imagination and is fundamental for self-respect. It is the key to prosperity and opens a world of opportunities, making it possible for each of us to contribute to a progressive, healthy society. Learning benefits every human being and should be available to all.”

Gender Equality (#5)


Discrimination in terms of gender devalues people. Not only does it destroy society, it also wastes human potential. ShopByLocals supports the UN by giving equal respect and opportunity for both men and women. This way, we prevent prejudice in our global society and ensure the proper regard for the dignity of all persons. 

TheGlobalGoals Icons Color Goal 5


“Gender bias is undermining our social fabric and devalues all of us. It is not just a human rights issue; it is a tremendous waste of the world’s human potential. By denying women equal rights, we deny half the population a chance to live life at its fullest. Political, economic and social equality for women will benefit all the world’s citizens. Together we can eradicate prejudice and work for equal rights and respect for all.”

Decent Work and Economic Growth (#8)


The UN promotes financial progress that creates decent and fulfilling jobs. ShopByLocals supports this goal by maximizing human potential through job creation. Our aim is the re-skilling and upskilling people via on-the-job learning. Through this, they will be constantly prepared for constant changes in the future of work.

“Economic growth should be a positive force for the whole planet. This is why we must make sure that financial progress creates decent and fulfilling jobs while not harming the environment. We must protect labour rights and once and for all put a stop to modern slavery and child labour. If we promote job creation with expanded access to banking and financial services, we can make sure that everybody gets the benefits of entrepreneurship and innovation.”

This will bring prosperity, create jobs and make sure that we build stable and prosperous societies across the globe.”

Reduced Inequalities (#10)


The world’s wealth is held by only a small group of people which causes financial and social discrimination. We must help underprivileged persons to prosper. Equality and advancement must be attainable for all regardless of race, gender, religious beliefs or economic status. ShopByLocals provides equal opportunities for all people across the globe – without the discrimination.  

TheGlobalGoals Icons Color Goal 10


“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.”
