In September 2015, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly with the mission to achieve 17 sustainable development goals around the world. The goals were built on the principle of “leaving no one behind”, and among these goals is the benchmark for inclusive and quality education (SDG 4).
Education is a fundamental human right that is central for building resilient societies, as well as achieving personal aspirations and all the other Sustainable Development Goals. The Young Shapers Club made SDG 4 her core operational SDG to ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality primary and secondary education irrespective of their socioeconomic background. Young Shapers Club started with implementing educational programmes in select IDP camps in Abuja by delivering basic tutorial lessons in makeshift classes. This project enabled the initial selection of promising participants who received sponsorship to enrol in formal educational systems.
