His Highness Muhammad Sanusi II, SDGs Challenge 2023: For A Call to Action for African Teachers ($2000 in Grants)
DEADLINE: May 30, 2023
His Highness Muhammad Sanusi II, 14th Emir of Kano & UN Advocate of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in partnership with 1 Million Teachers launched the annual MSII SDG Challenge in 2021. The aim of this challenge is to catalyze and empower teachers in developing innovative community projects focusing on SDG 4 – Quality Education, and SDG 5 – Gender Equality.
HH MSII SDG Challenge
Transforming education systems begins with teachers. Enabling teachers in developing scalable education projects helps ensure that all students have access to the education they deserve. The MSII SDG Challenge focuses on social entrepreneurship principles and systems thinking, to support teachers through the stages of ideation, project implementation, and achieving scale. The Challenge is open to practicing teachers based anywhere in sub-Saharan Africa.
The HH MSII SDG Challenge aims for the provision of high-quality, gender-responsive education to students - particularly girls - in the most deprived regions of the world. We do this by empowering teacher-changemakers with the skills, networks and resources they need to lead innovative and impactful community-based projects. The HH MSII SDG Challenge will unleash the vast untapped potential of Africa's teachers, by combining their on-the-ground expertise with a dynamic, entrepreneurial support system. The Challenge is more than an incubator or an accelerator - it is an ecosystem catalyst. By providing expertise, resources and support for teachers at various stages of their leadership journey, the Challenge will nurture a grassroots movement of teacher-changemakers.
A Unique Pathway for Teacher-Changemakers
Africa needs community-driven innovation to transform its education system – join our teachers in building your ideas and bringing them to life! The HH Muhammad Sanusi II SDG Challenge provides teachers with online training, coaching, and resources in social entrepreneurship to make a difference in their community. There are four “programs” associated with the Challenge to meet the needs of changemakers at all stages of their journey to impact.
