Making the SDGs in Rural Nigeria through Makerspace
Sule Jacob- Executive Director
What we do?
We are empowering students and youths in rural Nigeria to help achieve the UN SDGs through Makers and Design thinking philosophies.
Why we do it?
The SDGs targets are interconnected and aim to leave no one behind, however one of the biggest challenge the Nigerian youth faces amongst other things is having access to resources that will help to enable them take actions and realisation of the of the Goals. Schools are poorly funded, poor curriculum, under staffed, shortage of skilled and qualified teachers, lack of basic educational facilities, absence of proper sanitation facility and perimeter fencing to keep the schools safe and secure. We are set to change the narrative and empower students and youths to take actions locally towards achieving a sustainable society for all.
