Have a read of Hawa’s conversation with Nuhu on his thoughts on the SDG’s and Global Citizenship
My Name is Nuhu Hakeem, I am the communications and research director of Mother of all Nations Foundation.
1. What does it Mean to be a Global Citizen?
A Global Citizen is a member of an international community of change agents who strive to make the world a better place by helping to fix the challenges the world is facing.
2. In regards to the SDGs, which one do you feel impacts you the most / OR which one are you most passionate about?
The SDG that I am most passionate about is the SDG4 which seeks to ensure equitable and inclusive quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. As a volunteer facilitator, I have played a significant role in achieving this goal through various Literacy Project for young learners especially now that schools are indefinitely closed/suspended.
3. How did you get involved with your organization?
Through a video l watched on YouTube which was about a particular project, READCAMP, an off campus Literacy program for kids in undeserved communities which seeks to help improve their reading and writing skills. From there I decided to contact the organisation because their objectives is in consonance with mine.
4. What makes you passionate about what you do within your organization?
Seeing our beneficiaries, especially young learners become a better version of themselves makes me Happy and passionate about rendering my selfless service.
5. How do you see MTW and your organization collaborating?
MTW and MOANF can collaborate and form a synergy because both organisation seeks to address the problems in the society around us. My organisation focuses on helping to achieve SDG 1, 2,3, 4, 5, 8 and 10. So I believe we can come together to develop strategies that are geared towards achieving the UN’s SDGs.
