OCHO WORKS HAND IN HAND WITH UN DELEGATE AND NGOs IN ORDER TO WORK TOWARDS THE 17 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS IN ORDER TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD BY 2030. BELOW YOU WILL SEE SOME WAYS IN WHICH OCHO HAS PARTICIAPTED IN SAID GOALS AS WELL AS THE PLANS FOR FUTURE WORK:

Sustainable Goal #3

GOOD HEALTH AND WELL BEING:

Utilizing funds from a grant funded program sponsored by the Council on Compulsive Gambling of NJ, OCHO was able to provide mental health counseling services to individuals struggling with mental health and gambling addictions. Particpants were identified in at-risk communities, with little/no health insurance or access to mental health care services. The services included individual, group, and family counseling, and was free of charge to all participants.

OCHO believes that in order to help our communities grow, they need to be healthy and strong. Too often mental healthcare is overlooked and underserved, and OCHO aims to change that. By helping those who need it get qulity mental health and subatance abuse services, we are working otwards good health and well being for all!


Sustainable Goal #10

REDUCED INEQUALITIES:

One of the biggest threats to equal human rights for the people of Pueto Rico is its colonial status. That is why OCHO avdily supports the decolonization of Puerto Rico, and has addressed the Committee of 24 during the decolonization hearings. Below you will see a clip from one such presentation. In addition to participating in the Special Committee hearings each year, OCHO created a documentary titled "Colonization is Extinction", and has presented the film in venues all around the tri-state area, in an attempt to educate the communities, bring awareness to the crisis on the island that colonialism create, and help to motivate people to work towards change.
