Churches for Development

Leave no one behind

Waking the Giant raises awareness among Churches and church-related actors about the importance and relevance of the Agenda 2030 for their ongoing work. It provides them with tools to relate their work to the SDGs and make their contributions to the Agenda 2030 more visible.

At the national level, Waking the Giant helps to establish and strengthen the link between faith-based actors, relevant government ministries and UN agencies. It systematically maps churches’ contributions to specific SDGs and facilitates joint planning and new partnerships to further strengthen the Churches’ engagement.

Waking the Giant is presently piloted in four target countries:

  • Liberia
  • Tanzania
  • Colombia
  • United States
