The Muhammad Sanusi II Sustainable Development Goals Initiative (MSII SDG Initiative) has called on all teachers across sub-Saharan Africa to apply for the 2022 MSII SDG Challenge. This comes after the success of the first Cohort – the MSII SDG Challenge in 2021.

His Highness, Muhammad Sanusi II highlighted the importance of the challenge because of the rate of out-of-school children in Africa and Nigeria. He said: “I believe the girl child education in Africa, especially the girl-child education is the key to unlocking many of the problems around SDGs. “We have one out of every five of the world’s out-of-school children in Nigeria, even though primary education is officially free and compulsory.

“About 10.5 million of the country’s children are not in school. Only 61 per cent of the 6-11-year-olds regularly attend primary education and only 35.6 per cent of children between 3-6 years receive early childhood education.”

For the Cohort 2 Incubation Program, selected teachers will get the opportunity to network with a large community of like-minded colleagues. They will have access to an array of resources including mentorship and required training to refine and scale up their ideas. They also stand a chance to win an initial grant of $2,000 with possible follow up funding.
