The Muhammad Sanusi II Sustainable Development Goals Challenge (MSII SDG Challenge) is a project committed to empowering highly competent and enterprising education change-makers who are taking action to develop learning outcomes in their communities, especially for girls and women.
In 2020, following the announcement of the MSII SDG Challenge, which is in partnership with 1 Million Teachers (1MT) – a social enterprise that provides access to high-quality teacher education to underserved communities around the world, over 225 applications with 902 team members from 9 countries within Sub-Saharan Africa were received.
After a thorough review process – the highly awaited top 10 finalists which form Cohort 1 of the challenge were announced and on boarded earlier this January 2021.
With its stated objective to fuel innovation, inspire, and catalyze innovative community development activities that support the achievement of the SDGs, particularly quality education and gender equality – The MSII SDG Challenge, which is named after the immediate past Emir of Kano and former Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi Lamido – aims to support the educational projects of the selected change makers which cut across various communities in Africa.
