In 2015, leaders from all over the world gathered under the auspices of the United Nations (UN) for a unanimous consensus to adopt 17 goals (Global Goals for Sustainable Development’s and commonly known as SDG’s, short for Sustainable Development Goals). These goals are designed to create a better world by 2030.
Why is the UN pushing for these goals? They have THE “power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change.” “Guided by these goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society, and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone,” says the UN.
The world is expected to do all it could to achieve these goals. There must be no excuse for any country to miss this target by the set timeline. The first port of entry for any global development to succeed is for education institutions to adapt their education programs, to suit such global targets.
Botho University ’s blended and distance learning programs, through our Faculty of Health & Education, are among the few that now tick all the boxes of global SDG goals of Good Health and Well-Being (Goal # 3) and Quality Education (Goal # 4).
As learning is a catalyst to global development, we are committed to our mandate of being a responsible, futuristic educational institution, lending its weight towards the fight towards efforts for a better world such as meeting the SDGs.
Botho University is gladly and professionally nurturing future global leaders, contributing towards a better world through well thought out distance learning programmes, available in its Faculty of Health & Education. Studies are offered for several courses namely:
- BSc (Hons) in Health Information Management
- Certificate in Child Care
- Certificate Level 3 in Health Informatics
- Certificate Level 3 in Health Monitoring and Evaluation
- Post Graduate Diploma in Higher Education (PGDHE)

Once you have graduated in any of the above listed accredited and powerful qualifications, you are not only on the path to helping or influence a better world for all but perhaps more importantly, at a personal level, you’re prospectively setting yourself up to a productive life.
Likewise, a better world for all societies translates to safe and happy communities at large, and who among us would not want to contribute towards that? Surely no one would want to be seen impeding such noble ideas.
