Concept Note:

On September 25th 2015, 193 member states of the United Nations adopted a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which will guide the social, economic and environmental actions every nation must take to achieve a sustainable future by the year 2030. This landmark agreement serves as a framework of global aspirations for the world to commit to in order to address the biggest global challenges of our time. It calls upon all stakeholders - governments, businesses, civil society, and academia and youth, to work together in creating solutions that will meet the goals.

Likewise the African Union adopted the ‘Agenda 2063’ in the year 2013 – a strategic framework for the socio-economic transformation of the continent over the next 50 years. It builds on, and seeks to accelerate the implementation of past and existing continental initiatives for growth and sustainable development. Both agendas are targeted at achieving similar results but while the SDGs are focused on a more sustainable world, the Agenda 2063 focuses on accelerating the ‘rise’ of our continent, ensuring inclusivity across the progressive member States.

Unfortunately, a great majority of Africans have no clue about the existences of these goals/ agendas. Hence the probability for the realization of them will remain a fantasy except drastic measures are taken towards its implementation. The aim of this project is to imbibe these goals into the primary and secondary education system in Nigeria and Africa using a sustainable volunteer-centered model which will educate and prepare this demographic to create a more inclusive and sustainable Africa.

Project Objectives:

The Project 2063 will be driven to meet the following objectives:

  • Create civic responsibility awareness.
  • Bridge in the future skills gap in Nigeria. (Leadership & critical thinking, entrepreneurship, creativity, complex problem solving, emotional intelligence and team building skills).
  • Cross sectional data collection in diverse fields. Such as; the proportion of youth and adults with information and communications technology (ICT) skills, health statistic etc.
  • Acquisition of knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development through education, sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.

This project will be driven in your school to create an ecosystem where secondary school students will be engaged to:

  • Know, understand and appreciate Agenda 2063 Aspirations of African governments.
  • Initiate conversations at micro and macro levels to forge networks, create platforms and develop workable action plan to help their different schools, communities, local and state governments become a player in the achievement of these aspirations.
  • Develop, influence and implement sustainable programmes and policies that leverage the advancement of the African continent.
  • Trap opportunities that will put development spotlight on Africa through programs and projects at the community and national levels respectively.
  • Ideate; design and implement standard youth-focused interventions that drive sustainable change for the 21st century.
  • Appreciate Africa and its member states with sights on internal and intentional development plans for the continent as young people.
  • Create admirable ecosystems across their classrooms and schools to forestall the brain drain plaguing Africa, with special considerations for Nigeria.

The Intervention:

Our intervention model has been developed to meet global standards in school education programs. The need for student-centred engagement and learning, an effective methodology in effective and efficient learning is littered all through our training modules and thematic intervention areas developed by Globe Takers Foundation for Child Development. Our intervention covers the following areas:

Majority of limitations we face as a continent can be traced to poor leadership decisions and provisions of enabling environments for human capital development. This module handles relevant and real-time experience to finding sustainable solutions to leadership problems and building strong institutions and businesses in Africa.

Africa will keep playing dependence on international aid until young people create scalable businesses that solve the alarming population needs that daily stare us in the face. This course puts tools in the hands of students to think beyond classrooms to solving people problems that can put money in their hands, create clusters of businesses and boost the internal revenues and GDPs of their states and country respectively.

Internal control and associations which spill into maladaptive behaviour births situations that get young people to pick up habits associated with unregulated screen time, uninformed health decisions and tech-traps that inhibit growth and personal development. This training provides hands-on perspectives and buffer zone approaches to keeping young people safe.

This module looks at uninformed decisions, health habits and practices that tank the health of young people. It identifies and proffers solutions from medically qualified and licensed professionals in the health sector.

The mouth-gaping mismanagement of inherent potentials and skillset of young people by themselves and institutions of learning in Africa has consistently shot us all in the leg. This training provides high-level interaction and workable action plan to put right pegs in the right holes while equipping young people for the jobs of the future.

This will highlight the problems created by the internet, technology and globalization while building participants capacity to build buffer zones while leveraging on the opportunities of technology and its solutions to world problems.
